Does anyboby still manufacture shaper tools?

I am interested in the square shank with a 'knife' on the end.

It would take a lot of grinding to make some of the cranked, hooked and knife shaped tools. Someone used to make them as I have a few but I would like to get a few of the shapes that are missing from this set.

Check here:


Nice variety of blanks available, and good quality HSS too.

Some shaper tools were custom forged for the application. Silver steel or drill rod should work.
