Any one here a Shaper Origin Workstation Dealer I can pre-order from? Figure I'll throw my money at people who help out in this forum.

We will soon be adding Shaper to our product offerings later this month, including the new workstation.

If you're not in a hurry, we would appreciate earning your order.

More info on the launch of Shaper on toolnut.com coming soon. Stay tuned.

pre-ordering the new workstation by March 31 includes a free special edition sys-1, think you will be ready for orders by then?

@zapdafish yes, we expect to be taking orders before the end of the month. If you don't want to wait, certainly understand.

You are killing my wallet. I saw the Shaper Origin a few weeks ago and my desire to have one had subsided. The workstation will push me over the edge.

I almost pre-ordered before seeing this thread. I'll wait. The workstation looks really nice and will solve a separate problem so I don't need to build an overly-specific jig. I do hope the guy doing the videos describes his special spoil board and what he uses it for.

Is there any reason to order before the end of the month other than getting a special edition SYS-1? If it comes with a plain SYS-1 after that it's good enough for me.

The special Sys-1 is not even for the Workstation - just a Systainer with a foam insert and the Shaper logo on it.  The actual workstation is larger than a Systainer footprint.

I did pre-order this morning.  I've been really pleased with the Shaper and the progress they are making with software updates and things like the workstation and a great community of users.

As far as I understood the offering that 'free special edition sys-1' is for buying a shaper origin, not the workstation.

Nope. There was a link sent to Shaper owners (and perhaps others, not sure) in an email yesterday at 4AM ET, that link added the SYS1 to the cart @ $90 and also added a $90 discount.



I believe the only way to get the SYS1/discount was via the link in the email, but I may be wrong on this.

hrmm, this is  part of the email I got which I interpreted to mean I  get the free Sys-1 if pre-order from a dealer or if I click the button but now I see it can be interpreted the free sys-1 only comes by clicking the button.

Well, that time has come—you can now Pre-Order your Workstation and redeem your free SYS-1 by clicking the button below or placing a pre-order with any of our 70+ dealers.

The wording is confusing. I’d read it that you can order from dealers as well.

Someone on the shaper forum confirmed thru experience that the only way to get the sys1 was using the email link we received.

I am still not clear on what the significance of the SYS-1 is? The Shaper Origin comes with a Systainer. Will the workstation fit in the SYS-1 or is the special SYS-1 for something else.

Its a bonus, a specially branded sys-1 with kaizen foam insert that you can customize how you want, $90 value for free  when pre-ordering the workstation.

And the workstation does not fit in it. There is a cut file available on the Shaper Hub for relieving the foam to fit all the standard shaper do-dads and a selection of bits.

My theory is, since being acquired by Festool, there is a cultural predilection to provide systainers with everything...

No.

As of it being a giveaway the framing it as a discount is intentionally misleading and as of that (at least in sane jurisdictions) a banned form of advertising. No clue about the US, but stuff like this has a good chance to end in (lost) litigation when performed in the EU - as marketing overdid it with thinking it being a good idea to slightly overprice a toothpick* as an automatically added giveaway so they can claim to discount you more than the GDP of a first world nation* only if you buy now, quick hard enough that even the lawyers that write our laws were appalled enough to put a stop to it.

Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with them throwing in that thing as a gift - my issue is with the way they do it.

*) the item and the amount are irrelevant and exaggeration was used to illustrate this particular scam.

@PaulMarcel - FestoolNirvana.com in Chicago is a Shaper dealer too.  Chip is the owner and is great to work with.

@PaulMarcel, good to hear from you friend.

Yes, we still intend to start taking orders for Shaper on our website this coming week. I will post here when that happens and try to tag those who were interested.

Thanks!

All,

We now have Shaper Origin, Workstation (pre-order) and related accessories available for order on our website.

There are two offers available with respect to the new Workstation. If you purchase just the Workstation, you will get a free Shaper SYS 1 Systainer. If you purchase the Workstation with the Origin, you save $50 instantly. The two offers cannot be combined.

Thanks in advance to those who have waited to order from us. Very much appreciated!

“Scam” is a bit harsh here mate. There is nothing shady about the guys at Shaper. I met them 2 years ago and they are a great company with a great product. They clearly outline what they are doing and what you get. If you think getting a free item valued at x is a scam, I guess you are just that type.

By the way, I have some waterfront property for you... I just need to get it from my friend. He is an African prince.

Cheers. Bryan.

thanks, finally saw enough regarding a feature I wanted to place my order. You would think the emails from  Shaper would have had  a link to more detailed videos like this. The ones I could find were just fluff.

Heads up, folks. Shaper has sent us a notification that they have sold out of their initial inventory of the Workstation. Orders placed now will not ship until September.
