  • maggi power feeder?

    I picked up a shaper a while ago (that I restored) and haven't used yet.
    There is a maggi power feeder (steff 2034 with 4 rollers) for sale at $550 locally which seems to be in good condition. I think it's a 1HP (or at least 1/2HP)
    I know they are good feeders but is this a good price? it appears they sell for over $1k new.

    I will most likely keep using my router more often but I might decide to build an entry door and kitchen cabinet for a new house, in which case the shaper could be quite useful. I am thinking worst case I could sell it for about the same price.

    Comments/suggestions? TIA

      I have almost the same model but mine is the 2048. That seems like a good price from what I have seen at auction, providing everything is in good shape and the rollers have not gone hard or badly worn. They are a lot nicer than the Asian Comatic units, I have the baby feeder as well on my router table.

        Thanks. I know there are 3 and 4-roller models of this machine. The one I'm talking about is probably the one on page 6 of the following:

          I think that is an excellent price. I have a 1/4 hp Toolex ( co matic ) and a 4 wheel 1 hp Delta and on a shaper it moves you into a different world and a whole lot safer especially on raised panels. Climb cutting done safely and no tear out. Steff has an excelent reputation but I am also very happy with the one I have. I have the 1/4 hp mounted on a riuter table and it is fantastic. Much better quality mouldings as you have even down pressure and a constant feed rate.On the router table I make the odd door and with a PC 7518 router and powe feeder everything is done on one pass.

              Thanks. Looking at the picture closely, it appears to be a 3-roller only (even though the ad. says 4-roller).

              I'm going to take a look at it later this evening and see if I can make a deal.

                Looks like its all there, I would grab it if I where you. They don't come up used around here very often.

                    What voltage is the unit? It should last 2 lifetimes. Those units are designed to be run for 100,000 hours. I think the price was excellent.

                      Hi mreza,

                      The Maggi 2034 is a 3 roll four speed feeder new around $1100. The 2044 would be a four roll four speed machine and the 2048 is a four roll eight speed machine. All run a 1 hp motor. Be sure on the power though as most of the Maggi machines older are three phase power.

                      We do stock brand new Maggi feeders as our first shipment just arrived in Canada. We are currently jumping threw hoops trying to get CSA to approve them.

                      We also stock a 2033 model in single phase with eight speeds for $995.00. It is very similar to the 2034/2038 model except the stand and column are a little lighter size.

                      The eight speeds are better for lower hp shapers because they have lower speed capabilities. Good if you need to take multiple passes. They also have faster speeds.

                      The price is good on the used one you mentioned if it is in single phase power and the wheels and unit itself is in good shape. New wheels are about $40 to replace.

                        Thanks to all. I was going to go there tonight but after talking to the seller had to reschedule it for tomorrow as he doesn't have 220 power to test run it.
                        I suspected it is 3 roller (based on pic) and the seller now confirmed he made a mistake and it is a 3 roller model. Will report back tomorrow.
