Shapers can be dangerous if not used properly.
Refer to OSH Answers Metalworking Machines - General for general safety tips.
A shaper is used to finish metals with a cutting tool that moves back and forth (the table is stationary). The cutting tool cuts in one direction only. It is similar to a planer where the work table moves back and forth while the cutting tool is held stationary.
