  • Rhodes Slotter

    I may have a line on a Rhodes slotter.

    Unfortunately it does not have the rotary table that the slotter came with.

    Does anybody have a Rhodes slotter with this rotary table?

    If so could you show us some pictures and share with us the dimensions and features?

    Thanks

    Is your prospective Rhodes purely a slotter? or is it the "convertable" version?
    In regards to the rotary table....that is only part of the package. The rotary table sits atop an "in-n-out" table to give you control over the "Y" axis.

      It is a dedicated slotter.

      And it does have the "in-n-out" table.

      The pictures on Tony's site show what looks like a rotary table with indexing capability...so I am looking to see what it was really like and to see if there is a current replacement.

        There's a modest amount of Rhodes shaper/slotter info on this page of my website:

          Thanks for the link...that is an excellent site for shaper info.

          I am still interested in seeing this Rhodes rotary table in the flesh.

          Does anyone have one to show?

          Also any recommendations for a replacement...a current rotary 6-8" table with dividing plates?

            Rhodes shaper

            I recently bought a 7 in Rhodes shaper.In the process of repairing/ restoring . Where does one find the serial no? Would be interesting to know when it was made.It is a basic machine, no pivoting table, no slotter attachment.It has been lightly used as there is little sign of wear, just a lot of time and grime. Thanks Bob[/I]

              My machine is deep in storage at the moment so I can't look but I seem to remember the SN is located on the right side near the bottom of the ram.

              FWIW...someone is keeping track of the SNs..I don't remember where the info is.

                  That list is on my site as linked above. I've just added Bob's machine to the list.

                        Rhodes slotter to look at

                        Believe the Tuckahoe Steam Museum has a rhodes slotter
                        at their location in Maryland. At one time (last year) it was pictured on their
                        web site.

                          I looked but did not find it...could someone provide a link to it?

                          Thanks

                              I have already checked here...and no luck.

                              Do you have a link to the specific page?
