  • Model Shaper`s finished Photo heavy by Lane

    As promise Here are my pair of model shapers I designed and built with some help from my friend Monty. They weigh in at 50 pounds each and hand full to carry around. Took a .015 deep cut in aluminum with .0025 feed . Cuts slick as glass .First photo they are lined up face to face so you can see both sides at the same time .

    Next view is back side rear .

    A size comparison with beer bottle .

    Right front side view.

    More to come.

                Absolutely exquisite, Lane! I wish I had your talent and skill.

                It seems like you should be up for some site award for project of the year or something similar.

                Well Done!

                    Wowser, that is incredible work Lane! What a feeling of accomplishment that must be. You obviously poured heart & soul and a gazillion hours into those beauties.

                    ps: I knew there was something else I liked about you. I have a fresh-out-of-the-freezer-for-20-minutes MGD in my hand as I type this. Mowing the back yard in this heat was a killer! Nuttin' better'n a frosty MGD to make life more agreeable.

                              I just copied what I had . Except for the gear box . I tried but was going to be too small and not work right so I designed a back gear system that I thought might look right.
