      Wish I could help...... Now, if it was a South Bend or Atlas!! Look inside the column and see if the bearing block inside the ram crank has an adjustment stud, nut, or a scale graduated on it. That should be an indication of the length adjustment.

        Check out http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Metal_Shapers/ or www.machinerymanuals.com.The Yahoo site you have to join,members only,but they seem to have some good info.The Machinery Manuals has copies of old parts and operations manuals for a lot of machines,albeit a little expensive. Jim

          I just rebuilt my 7" Ammco.
          Spin the handle till the arrow lines up with the line on the bushing on the eccentric feed drive. ( Or spin the handle until the brass shoe is at the highest position, the bottom of the shoe is how you set the stroke by aligning it to the appropiate mark on the rocker arm ) You need to loosen the nut on the spinning shaft which drives thr brass eccentric strap.
          Tap it lightly with a piece of brass. Then you can adjust the travel. If it is really hard to adjust, your adjustment crank might be slightly bent. If you need more info email me, and I can show you some pictures of me setting mine. Good Luck!

              Hey! Turn the power off first! That could be the problem!

                OK John,
                I didn't check to see if the e-mail went thru but I did send the FAX of the manual this pm. As one writer said the manual is not that helpfull. If you didn't get thee-mail I can certainly re-send it. Line up the arrows. Loosen the screw that holds the brass "nut" and loosen the 3/4" nut at the end of the bull wheel shaft. Slide the "brass Nut" to the appropriate length and re-tighten everything. Gotta tell you boy's that it is slower using one of these things but the surface finish is BIG TIME better than a miller.

                    Shaque,
                    I emailed you a few days ago. Did you need some infor on your Shapper? I am looking for some measurements for the round cover! Thanks all!

                      John,
                      I get my emails returned to me when I send email to you email address. Is there another way to get you your info?
