A must have for the serious woodworker, the Nova TF 110 is the SCM shaper that combines quality and value for your investment. It has a very robust structure and all the controls can be accessed on the front of the machine for easy use. A mechanical digital reader ensures the precision of the spindle adjustment.

Monoblock technology is used in the design and fabrication of this base. The solid, welded base undergoes a treatment called normalization which stabilizes the metal and assures exact tolerances. All machine mechanisms are mounted, aligned, and referenced to the base. This design is vastly superior to frames that are bolted together and have no true reference point.

One thing that can degrade the quality of finish from a shaper is the vibration transmitted from the spindle to the cutter. Minimizing vibration is even more critical when cutting tall profiles using stacked tooling. SCM ensures maximum quality in its shapers by using very large spindle assemblies whereby the increased mass of the spindle absorbs vibrations and eliminates whipping action at the top of the spindle.

The Nova TF 110 has a healthy 5.5” tool capacity under the nut. Coupled with the digital indicator for the spindle height, this makes the SCM shapers perfect for the use of stacked tooling. For example, many woodworkers use a tooling package consisting of three cutters for making cabinet doors. The stile, rail, and panel cutters are all mounted on the same spindle. By raising or lowering the spindle, it is possible to perform all three operations without changing the cutter or the spindle. The five speed spindle further increases tooling flexibility.

The Nova TF 110 features a large shaper hood with memory pins which make its placement repeatable. Both the infeed and outfeed fences are adjustable from the rear of the machine, and the increments are measurable via a scale next to the positioning knob.

A standard feature on the Nova TF 110 is the MK4 interchangeable spindle. This feature allows the use of different spindles for various tooling with different spindle diameters. An upgrade to a larger shaper does not mean that all tooling needs to be replaced. Special tools can continue to be used simply by changing out to a different spindle. A 1-1/4" spindle comes standard.
