    For who is too lazy with the shaper chips cleaning

    I'm working at my own business, and only with my woman, we all know that they are not so obeying than years before, then for cleaning the big amount of very small cutting chips your shaper make with hard steels, it's really a problem, they are entering in shoes and dangerous for your feets.

    Then I've made a box, just clamped in seconds in front of the shaper, with a polycarbonate piece for the control in front and a little amount of sand or water in the box to prevent the firing when it's a lot of chips covering by cutting oil(I had this problem one time).
    Here is a view, and with this link you can see all pictures I've made, dimensions are for your own purpose, and material is recuperation 0,8mm. metal sheet.
