Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.

Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

This new PM2700 Shaper offers more features than any other shaper in its class. An extra-large 30 in. x 40 in. precision-ground cast-iron table with a heavy-duty miter gauge and an aluminum extruded support for extended work space flexibility. The extruded aluminum fence has several T-slots so you can mount a wood face to create a no clearance surface around any shaper or router bit. A spindle height digital readout enables you to make adjustments to within .001 in. in spindle height. This will assist you in aligning rail and stile cutters, critical in applications like raised panel doors.

A solid workhorse
The Powermatic shaper is a solid workhorse. I’m very impressed with the overall appearance and finish of the machine. The machine is heavy and solidly made. There are many features I love about this machine. The top is large and finely machined with fully bossed and threaded holes to receive a feeder. To mount a feeder in the past I have drilled and taped holes in the top with varying degrees of success. The ½” collet attachment is wonderful. It is like have a router table on steroids. The power switch has a safety feature I really like. There is a magnetic interlock that must be in place for the power to turn on. When changing tooling I take out the magnetic interlock and place it on the table so I know that it is safe to change the tool. The belt adjustment is wonderful. A toggle clamp controls belt tension. To change speeds one operates the toggle clamp to loosen the belt, move the belt to the new position and then operate the toggle back to the tension position. Very fast. The miter gage that comes with the shaper is wonderful. The bar can be fine tuned to fit the slot. There is an extrusion that can be positioned to support the work, and fixtures can be added to the extrusion to all the custom things one needs to do on a shaper.

The fence is fantastic. In the past the first thing I would do is through away the fence that came with the shaper because it was useless. This fence is solid with adjustments that make it extremely accurate and useful. Casters in the base of the machine are perfect for me. I need to move the shaper from its storage location into operation because I have limited space. Just a few turns on the hand wheel and the casters in the base allow me to move it with ease. The dust ports are well thought out. There is one for the cutter area, as one would expect. There is another under the table to catch the shavings that fall through the throat. The spindle height hand wheel and lock are solid like the rest of the machine. The final feature I love is the digital readout for spindle height. It makes setups quick and easy. I mount a cutter on the spindle and lower it so that the cutter is flush with the shaper table. (I use a dial indicator.) I zero out the digital gage and then raise it to working height and record the reading. The next time I need to use that cutter I can repeat the set up exactly.

There is only one thing I would change about this tool and that is that the spindle does lower enough to take full advantage of the spindle length.

Overall this is the best shaper I have ever owned.

Dave C on Nov 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is pre-drilled for a Powermatic feeder, It is a large four bolt pattern on the back corners, Does NOT work for all power feeders, although is is very easy to drill new holes for a different feeder pattern, Good Luck!
