About Shapers

A shaper is a type of machine tool that uses linear motion between the workpiece and a single-point cutting tool to machine a linear toolpath. Its cut is like that of a lathe, except that it is linear instead of helical. A shaper is like a planer, but smaller, and with the cutter riding a ram that moves above a stationary workpiece, rather than the entire workpiece moving beneath the cutter. Mainly superseded by CNC machines, shapers still have a large niche market of workman who love the control and versatility combined with the skill that only a shaper can bring to the table.
