About twenty years ago I bought one of these for the Poitras (General) 3/4" shaper I used to make flooring, doors, windows, cove siding and cabinets for the renovation of the 1837 stone cottage which became our home. When tongue and grooving, it will take a 12', 12" red oak board at one end and give it back at the other, when properly adjusted. I also have made whatever 3 1/2" crown moulding I needed out of red oak and pine. Another set of mouldings allow me to make panelled garage doors out of hemlock and walnut. Don't believe the comments on the Internet that a 1/4 hp power feeder is inadequate. Properly installed and set up, this model will do a steady job over many thousands of feet of hardwood.
