Has anyone have info or advice on the Viceroy Royal 250 shper? I am unfamiliar with these. I was thinking it might be a useful unit in the workshop as I cannot afford a mill at present. the shaper has a footprint of 460mm x 800mm and will nott take up much floorspace. Thanks.
here is the url

I know mine is called a "Royal" shaper .....and thats all the info I have on it .
I know 2 or three guys with this exact shaper....but no-one has the manual for it
if you have one ....it would be most appreciated by all if you did a scan of it.

The best example of this shaper I've seen is here..

PS IF YOU WONT SOME LIGHT ENTERTAINMENT IT'S WORTH LOOKING AT "WORKSHOP CONSTRUCTION" http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif

Day seven is rather interesting where he attempts to bury a really nice mini digger http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

I find it very hard to believe
that he is building a workshop.
no matter how many times I look at it , and the way it's being done, just puzzels the hell out of me.
It should be titled "How not to construct a workshop"
Or perhaps he's making a gouverment training video for the building industry...showing us how many things can go wrong. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif

If you go through the pictures backwards, it looks like they dug up a small backhoe.

Was that a BBC TV series? Can`t wait for the re-runs;
"quick Lin, get the video ready, I want to record this".
"why dear?"
"Darling, I`m going to build myself a workshop just like that beauty and surround my Viceroy with assorted cr*p" http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Hey you all, I need some real info urgently on the shaper thanks http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//eek.gif http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//eek.gif. The unit I am looking at tomorrow is very similar to the one in test-net; it does not have the round ram but a square type. It has been suggested it might be an Alba. Any help coming?
