There are mixed reviews about mini or baby ability feeders, so I thought I'd share my experience. Very first, this is not a flimsy or shoddy unit. On the contrary, It is astonishingly strong and strong. I set up one on my 1 1/2 hp shaper and cannot imagine the will need for a larger power feeder. This size power feeder seems appropriate for regular hobbyist on a more compact shaper.
