    Default Cincinnati utility hydraulic shaper 20"

    Hello All,
    I bought this shaper from a online auction unseen. Big mistake. Found damage on it after it was paid for while strapping down on truck.

    Cincinnati utility hydraulic shaper 20" S/N 31235. I will try to attach a pic. The casting holding the table feed stuff on the main frame is broken. I had to remove the fiberglass cover to really see it.
    If anyone knows of one of these being parted out or where I can get parts, parts manual, date of build, would be a life saver.
    Thanks again
    Steve

    You can find the serial number stamped on the head and at the operator's side of the base up by the ram, typically 5 numbers.

    Cincinnati Incorporated can assist with the date of manufacture: Parts Department — Cincinnati Incorporated

    You should ask, but typically parts such as castings, are unavailable for their old shaper product lines.

    CI is very helpful with providing drawings on request.

    Look here for technical info: Cincinnati Shaper Co. / Cincinnati Inc. - History | VintageMachinery.org

    You may have to braze/nickel weld the old feed box back into functional condition!
    Build a fixture to align the mounting face and bores and off you go.

    BTW: your Cincinnati shaper is mechanical, not hydraulic.

    It is just a cover, so I imagine you could braze or nickel weld it back up just fine. Look at John Oder’s post about his 20” Greaves Klusman lathe. He has extensive pictures and discussion of his repair of major casting cracking. It will show you how a master does it! It is a recently updated post, so just scroll down in this forum and take a look

    Well crap! If it is, fiberglass welding rod is hard to find and probably very expensive!

    The issue is the cast iron feed mechanism housing, located under the fiberglass cover is quite damaged; refer to photo 3 with cover removed.

    repairing castings with bronze weld isnt difficult....issue is when bits are missing,then there is a problem.......Anyhoo ,this is a good example of rule #1.....never pay more than scrap price ,if you cant inspect the machine working...(not just going)
