    The spindle cap on my Felder has pins at the top. Could be what the pin holes on that slot cutter are for.

    Also, as follow to an earlier discussion, my spindle measure roughly 1.18 which converts to 30mm.

If you have a minute a measurement of the center to center distance would be great and remove any doubt. Mike D and I have been considering making a shaper hood for tenoning with larger cutters, I like your simple but effective approach.

    Hi Greg, the pins on the spindle cap are to prevent the cap screw from unscrewing itself when the shaper is run in reverse, they are not for the pin holes in tooling.

    So you have a 30mm spindle? Does it have the sleeves to increase it to 1.25"?

    The 30mm spindle will take the grooving cutter designed for the saw, allowing you to share tooling. I also share saw blades.

    The 30mm spindle also takes the Schlefix sanding drum which I use..............Regards, Rod.

    Thanks Rod. That makes sense.

    I dont believe I have any sleeve(s) to increase size to 1.25”. Not sure if they are available from Felder or not.

    Good to know now on the shared tooling. I’m following this thread with regards to an adjustable groover when I get to that point.

    Greg here are some pics of my friends 2007 KF500 spindle setup. Spindle is 1". The 3rd pic is the exchangeable 30mm sleeves. He has both the 30mm sleeves and the 1 1/4" sleeves. Quite possible knowing Felder they had a 30mm only spindle option.
