  • Just a couple of shaper videos...

    Thought some people here might like to see the shaper shear tool in action...

    I seem to be able to get a good finish with it...

    And here is another of some heavy cutting

    I am going out now to grind a tool like the one you show. I liked how the chips came off in spirals.

    Good job.

      the DOC in that first video is ludicrous! is that aluminum? or butter or something?

        I too use a shear tool in my little South Bend shaper. It is also useful in the lathe when you are trying to get a good finish on that steel mystery metal that just wants to tear and always leaves a rough finish. Great Vids!

            When I ran a shaper for my job a few decades ago, I almost always fed the cutter in from the other side. That struck me as kind of odd. Then I remembered you are living of the other side of the planet from me.

            Watching those videos made me kind of nostalgic. I am thinking most kids starting out nowadays in the machine trades will never run a shaper.

            Thanks for posting the videos.

                  Here's a link to what looks to be the same cutter style. I've used it for quite some time and it does a great job.

                    STOP IT, your just trying to make me buy a shaper, even if i dont need one, i just want to see the thing going back and forth,
                    I wonder if you can knurl with a shaper, flat stuff like vise jaws?

                      You absolutely can. And you can use them as filers, hacksaws, gear cutters, slotters, and surface grinders.

                        I aggree with Mark, if you live in New England, the first question is, what is
                        a shaper??? They just do not exist here, atleast I cant find one. Any for
                        sale is always on the other side of the planet.

                          Yes its a very under estimated machine
                          Reciprocating motion + adjustable stroke adjustable speed, what more can a man ask for

                          If a shaper excites you............. how about one of these -

                            It seems to me that the cutter is being used from the wrong side? First let me say I have only owned a shaper a few weeks so I don't know anything about them really.

                            It just seems backwards the way the edge is attacking the workpiece. I know you shouldn't argue with success but what is the advantage of having the shearing action that way?

                              The swarf is not going to skid all over the work scratching it....

                              Images of the same tool being used on the lathe show it cutting the same way, so I took that to be how it works int he shaper as well...
