    Yes I agree but this way is much cheaper then buying expensive milling cutters

    Nice job! Thank you for sharing!
    There's something very captivating seeing a shaper at its slow, persistent and heartbeat-like work.
    But perhaps not for impatient pleasure-seekers, or persons in need of instant and/ or constant gratification?
    There's a saying like: "You can make anything on a shaper, except a profit."
    To this I like to reply: -You seem to know the Prize of everything - but do you know the Value of anything at all?

    But then - I'm just a grumpy old geezer.
    -Keep the shaper going, ttmjr!

    Thank you, I really like the “sayings”, the time it takes to do a job on the shaper doesn’t worry at all, it’s all about the enjoyment of making something from nothing.
