Hello to all- I purchased a Delta 3hp shaper 60 days ago & have nothing but problems with it, first, one of the capacitors came apart, now the motor drive pulley’s set screws are coming loose causing more down time. I cannot be the only one experiencing problems with this unit, but according to Delta, I am the only one. Also when I purchased the shaper, I bought the Freud replaceable knive shaper cutter sets, about $600-700.00 for the raised panel set & the rail & stile set. I am also having trouble with those, specifically with a gap on the back of the door were the rail meets the stile. Of course Freud says I am the only one having trouble too. So my question is has anyone else experienced trouble with these? I have a full shop & have had hardly no issues with my other stuff by different manufactures. Thanx for any feedback as I decide whether to send this stuff back were it came from.
