View Full Version : Really nice shaper
08-18-2001, 04:18 PM
If I were able to pick it up, I would take it. I have one; but it is a 1959 model, had less than 1 years use when I bought it about 12 years ago. Just ran it for a few hours last night!
Manual says it will copy template to within .0005!
They were designed primarily for EDM electrode manufacturing.

It is interesting! Seems like it has all the features to make it a really useful machine! If it was near me I'd sure bid on it.

Yes I have never seen one like it very well thought out and designed from what I can see regards Alistair
I will be interested to see what it goes for. That is one nice machine. Look at all the features and goodies!

Sweet. If it was in my neighborhood (+/- 150 miles) I'd bid it up and sell my Atlas. I like.

A little early on my reply I guess!
Better get it while the getting is good Alistair. I see there are still no bids.

The method I use to shift the color enhances marks like oil stains. As they are not the same color (more grey) as the paint they don't shift the same and so become more visible.
