Make sure shapers meet these requirements.

(1) You must guard the cutting head of the shaper by enclosing it with either:
(a) A fixed guard, such as a cage; or
(b) An adjustable guard designed to keep the operator's hand away from the cutting edge.
(2) You must make sure the diameter of a circular shaper guard is at least as large as the greatest diameter of the cutter.
Note:
A warning device of leather or other material attached to the spindle is not an acceptable substitute for a guard.
(3) You must guard all sections of the cutting tool except for an opening to allow access to the work piece by the cutting tool.
Note:
A ring guard is one means of satisfying the guarding requirement for cutting tools when involved in free hand or template shaping.
(4) You must make sure all double-spindle shapers have a spindle starting and stopping device for each spindle.
