Exotic is a mild adjective when applied to the shaper. it will cut splines, keyways, gears, sprockets, dovetail slides, flat and angular surfaces and irregular profiles. and all of these with a simple hand-ground lathe tool bit. obsolete in modern industry, of course, because milling machines do the work much faster and cheaper. but you can't beat a shaper for simplicity and economy in the home shop.

The shaper has a 6" stroke and a mean capacity of 5" x 5", variable and adjustable stroke length, automatic variable cross feed and graduated collars. You will be proud to add this machine to your shop.

Especially designed for the developing home shop, it is a horizontal miller, but it has the full range of vertical mill capability when used with the angle plate on the work table.
