    Default Shaper help

    Does anyone have any links, or info on operating a shaper, grinding tool bits, setting up different jobs etc?? I have used a couple before for very easy things, cutting a slot for a screw driver for a screw, cutting on a flat to reduce the thickness, etc.....would like to learn more about these. Thanks,
    Craig

    Try to obtain a copy of "The Shaping Machine" by Ian Bradley.

    Yahoo has a group dedicated to the Atlas shaper. You may want to check it out. There are also a number of manuals available at metalillness.com, but I do not know if there are any specifically about the shaper, but the Navy's Machinery Repairman manual on the site has a section on shapers and planners.
