  • 2" depth 0.030" feed shaper cuts in steel

    In Kay Fisher's shaper column number 60, you can read this:

    "In a book, Shane saw a 24 inch Cincinnati shaper (same as one he has) taking a 2 inch deep cut with a .030 feed in steel. "

    Another piece of the article, this picture "hydraulic shaper":

          Someone posted a video on Youtube of a large Cincinnati shaper peeling off big chips. The chip would "pop" when it cleaved.

          I bet the hydraulic shapers were even more impressive

            Simply amazing. That steel looks like a block of cheese being sliced.

              Used to run a mid-sized Niles planer that took about the same cut on each of 4 heads. Not a fair comparison of course but an example of the power and capacity of production machine tools.

                So ... what kind of cuts can us small shaper folk expect; 1" dept, 0.015" pass?

                  The link to pictures of the Doxford works a few days ago had some interesting pictures in the same genre. One was a large planer that had two crankshaft webs mounted end to end so both were planed simulaneously. There were also a couple pictures of a vertical shaper with a similar piece on a rotary table to cut the radiused ends. It took me a minute to figure out what I was seeing since it was such a different operation and scale. Very impressive machines.

                    If you look at the base of the block being shaped in the above picture, you will notice the skimpy hold the vise has on the block!
