Looking for a Volstro Shaper-Slotter with R8 spindle attachment. Vertex also made one similar that they called a "Slotting Head Unit", tried to see if they still produce them but haven't heard back from them so I thought I take a shot here.

The Volstro slotter was only for the lightest imaginable work in the most compliant material. You'e better off getting someone to burn via edm, I have a Bport with an E-head (slotter) it's more robust but still not cost effective if you are trying to make money on this. I'd not sell the E-head, but then again I'd not buy one either.
 
Your definitely correct that the slotters are not the fastest way to go, but it would come in handy. I seen some nifty hand/lever powered ones that others have constructed and I may try to slap something similar together.
 
Duke, If this is a one off on a knee mill,then their is already a hand stroke mechanism in place on the quill anything you add is simply going to be additional slop and hysteresis. Just sayin.
