  • Whipp Shaper video

    I have produced a short video showing my shaper in operation. Not too exciting I'm sure but it shows all the main components of the shaper in operation and identifies them. It's 2 1/2 minutes long.

    I'm providing it as a low res version here at first which is a 2.8 megabyte download. If anyone would like a higher res version please say so. I will then pm you with a link to download from. I don't want it found in the high res version by a search engine or it will kill my server. The high res version is a 12 mb download. The full res version is also available (37MB) but you will have to convince me you need it.

    I retain the copyright to the video but you are free to copy and distribute for free as you wish.

      Evan's internets are broken.



      (I wanna see the video!)




      Edit: Hey, I found it. Evan, it's in your pics2 directory, the same as the load test video. Here's the right link:

      Cool video, I'd never seen a shaper work before. Now I want one

      I must also admit, I'm very bored right now and am busying myself trying to guess the filename of your higher resolution video... so far I can't seem to find it.

      You never learn anything by doing it right.

        I'm glad you found it. That is exactly why I made the video. It's for people that have never seen a shaper operate before which was me just a few months ago.

        Lotsa luck. It's not in a directory that I use for posting.

        I'll PM you a link in a little while.

            Don't skip over this if you've never seen a shaper working.

            Amazing what 2 1/2 minutes of video and a few words can convey.

                    OK..

                    Ever seen a motor-grind rock mounted on a shaper as a surfacer?

                    Ever seen a knurling tool mounted to put knurls on a flat surface?

                    Ever seen inside keyway cutting? spline?

                    My lil southbend is pretty neat. It cuts slow thou. Lots faster than I do with a file.
                    Excuse me, I farted.

                      I love to see them work. I think we like shapers for the same reason we like steam engines....way more moving parts than you get in any other implementation

                      There really is something about reciprocal motion in old machines that is fascinating, maybe even mesmerizing. Everything runs in circles now days

                        Even my wife likes it. She was complaining because the sound of it in the garage is just audible in the living room and she said it put her to sleep.

                          Evan, My manual says to start a 1/2 " before the start of cut and 1/4" past after the cut, or some such.

                            2-1/2 minutes? I've been watching it since this morning, didn't realize the player was on loop. Now my whole day is gone... zzz, shhhh, zzzz, shhhh, ...

                              Was that aluminum or steel ... hard to tell in the video.


                              I think someone posted a video of a metal planer here a while back. Shapers and planers just kick ass. I never get tired of watching them. Thanks for the video!!
