Nice machine and probably will go for a cheap price.

Beautiful machine. Has it's own gravitational field :)

Strange that the ram is a different color.

Made me chuckle when I read they offer a free tailgate loading service. That would be a great photo. That lump weighs more than my Dodge RAM.

Could be a pretty nice machine. Since it is a "Tool Room" the cross feed on the table is finer. Instead of the usual .010" to .180" in steps of .010" it is .005" to .090" in steps of .005"

Also, being a Tool Room, there is no base extention and no front table support. You should still be able to hog off some serious metal, you back off for the finish cut anyways.

I see the clapper box assembly and vise wrench in that barrel. The rest of the parts for the power down feed might also be in there.

This could be a good find for some one that can go take a lookie loo.

Boy I don't know its up to $170.00 already, and still 4 days to go. :rolleyes: If I had a little more room I'd go for it, its only 100 miles away.

You guys realize if anyone wants that shaper, that you're boosting the price with this thread? :)

Not likely by much, it hasnt even reached the scrap value, which is probably about where it will top off. Shapers in New England are like corn kernals in the midwest - everywhere.

Regarding the colored ram, that is safety yellow. It is also on the table and vise.
