Question by Linzer3: Is there an active woodworking club in the Shreveport/Bossier City, LA area?
I’m very interested in joining a group where I can learn some woodworking skills and how to operate different tools etc. (i’m a total beginner)

Answer by Sandman44
If there is a Home Depot near you, they offer classes for all types of do it yourself projects.

Other than that, you could contact your local chamber of commerce and ask them for information on clubs and newsletters in your area.

Also local shops/stores and small newspapers may have information or flyers on clubs.

Good luck, hope this helps!

    This review is from: Shop Fox W1674 2 HP Shaper (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I had been using a 3.25 HP Porter Cable router mounted on a table with a lift. Larger bits had to be handled very carefully to prevent splits and kick backs, forcing me to have to make numerous passes in some cases. Wanting to be able to make raised panel doors and knowing my experience with (relatively speaking) smaller bits, I was skeptical that the router could handle it. I had become convinced that a shaper cutter, not a router bit, is what I needed to be able to make clean cuts in one pass.

    After ordering this item, I bought the accessory to allow me to run router bits on this shaper. For comparison, I tried out several of the larger bits I had trouble with in the past. Same bit, same stock, and immediately I got professional results far better than anything I had seen before using a router. I had always heard that a shaper was “a different animal” from routers, but I didn’t realize how different. The bigger motor, slower rpm and much greater torque along with a much heavier tool will make it easy for you to finally get your money’s worth out of router bits and shaper cutters alike.

    A few observations:
    – This thing is heavy, greatly reducing vibration
    – When you turn in on, it has an immediate full-speed hum, the pitch of which is virtually unchanged when put under a load.
    – The safety arms / material guides are very strong but a little tedious to adjust
    – I spent less for this shaper (< $800 at the time) than I had on my router table rig over the years.
    – It took me months to decide whether I should buy this. Glad I bought it!

    Was able to buy from a local dealer at a cheaper price, includes life time repair and local dealer support. Once you get all the pieces put on the machine, it is a nice solid machine. Nicer to work with than shop made router table and more accurate. Bought the router bit spindle and it was not hard to install. Only reason it got 4 instead of 5 stars. The long time it took to get all the anti rush covering off. Got a tip from the dealer that WD-40 would make it a lot easier to get the gunk off. Other than a pint of WD-40, rages and elbow grease the machine looked nice.

    great shaper, should have been 4 star…….., October 7, 2006

    I bought this to re[lace my Delta 1/2″ (which I gave to my son). This is a great machine, I only use the 3/4″ on 10,000 rpm ’cause the 7,000 speed causes a lil chatter. Also bought the 1/2″ router collet to use my router bits, but due to about a 20 min change over I rarely use it. 1 very nice feature is the extra spindle travel, you can actually put 2 different bits on this machine and go back and forth between them. I would highly recomend this to anyone.
