    I used to hate being relegated to the shaper in my younger days...................when I was paying the bills for cutters, I started wishing that I had a shaper.

    I am haunted by an old Swede..............I swear, his favorite term was "you can do that on a shaper"

    I am still amazed at some of the stuff guy's made on shapers.

    Tool & Die shop I worked at once, where I frequently ran a shaper, would service the tooling they built, DECADES ago. I remember one die I was rebuilding. I tore it apart and found stamped on the die shoe 61 (or something there about) one of the old timers brought out a BLUE print, hand drawn, of the die. Showed me how he laid out the radii and compound angles. Set it up and almost entirely machined on a shaper. Some was finished on a die filer and then hand worked in a light box.

    When my grandfather passed I was cleaning out his home shop and under his Atlas shaper was a scrap box. Inside I found a part he was making on the shaper. Best way to describe it was a cylinder with a ID tapered octagon. Sides were all flat, square, and parallel.

    And yes! I bought my shaper almost 10 years ago, and am still using the same box of HSS for it. My son will probably still be using that box of HSS

    Yes, Alden is a small town a few miles off of I90 about 40 miles east of buffalo. The owner has a racine power hacksaw, a nice old drill press and a 15" rotary table advertised in various craigslist posts as well.

    For what it is worth. This shaper has power down feed and it appears to work.
