    Here's some clapper details from my Atlas 7B:

    Good luck with the rebuild. It is worth putting some effort into if you want a shaper, there is enough there to work with. Keep us posted with pictures & progress reports.

    JCHannum-- It is indeed the same machine. It was more complete than I expected, and I hope to have it running in the not too distant future. Will post pics when I have something to show.

    Kendall-- Good job on the garage! Now you need to get busy filling up all that empty space

    I believe that is the shaper I gave to Kendall. It is a very early Atlas, different in several respects to the later Atlas shapers most are familiar with. There were several different castings as well as the clapper being different.

    I can offer no clues as to how it comes apart, but I would suspect that it is one piece.

    Well, maybe you meant 5/16-18? Dunno about the OTHER end, but one end SHOULD have a 5/16-18 thread and nuts on it, although yours does look bigger in the picture.

    I didn't take that all the way apart, But it does develope more play if you move the bolt in one direction and snugs up going the other way, so it behaves as though it's tapered.

    PS, got the garage cleaned out finally, managed to get the little boat and all three motorcycles in at once, AND had room to walk around.

    I was going to say the same thing about the tapered pin. I'd say thread the nut on and tap with a soft mallet and see it it moves.

    It's non-standard, and anything may be there.

    It SHOULD be a tapered pin, with threads at ONE end.

    Shown is the clapper from a just-acquired early model Atlas 7" shaper. I'm taking everything apart for cleaning, and this has brought me up short. The clapper is held in the swivel by what appear to be two 5/8-18 studs. My only idea is to double-nut them and then unscrew them. Before I bugger up anything, though, I wanted to get a reality check from anyone who might be familiar with this machine. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Working...
