    Default Smith mill 25" b.g. Scraper

    The company I work for has a shaper that they bought from a high school here in Huntsville, AL that was closing. It was working when they bought it and it's just been stored in our warehouse for a few years. Anyway, they want to sell it now and I'm looking for help describing and pricing it. I am not a machinist, I've just been given the task to try and sell it. I will attach picture of it. Thanks for any advice you can give me.

    Thanks for pointing out my mistake. I can't seem to edit the title though.

    shapers are a bit "trendy" right now, they're on a few sellers websites, we even recently bought two for running simple squaring work on rough or tough metals, they also work well for internal keyways, splines, odd shapes and they work just fine in blind holes, something cnc can't do without expensive tooling. shapers are slow but very useful! Recently used mine to make a large rack gear. only cost was time and steel, no special tooling. wish I could make the trip I'd love to have another one!
