There is a saying you can make anything with a shaper but money...

As memtioned, it’s a tool and cutter grinder. Making a cutter from scratch on one is doable, but a lengthy process, there are specialty machines out there for that.

Resharpening is where they shine, if: 1.) you have all the parts and pieces required
2.) you know what you’re doing, and really understand cutting tool geometry.

The last place I worked that was setup for it was the diecasting shop, even with likely 30 machinists (manual and cnc) they phased it out, was more cost efficient to buy new at that time. As prices are steeply increasing, that may change.

There are resharpening services out there too, many you can ship stuff to and they ship back when it’s done. They also can often modify existing tools for a specific use.

I agree with the others to hold onto the grinder especially with all that big iron you have. It will be good for sharpening bits. I don't know what the drill press is but a mill will do everything a big ol' drill press will do. I've seen 4 station production drill presses go for less than $100 at auction as CNC has made them obsolete...
