Shaper

More deals I just couldn’t refuse lately.  An Ammco 6″ Shaper.  I had no idea where to us it before getting it.   A little more research found that it still had some strengths over the mill.  Such uses include: dovetails, square holes, broaching and contour cuts along a length.  It’s also mechanically automated, serving a place to automate the squaring of stock before a milling operation.  The surface finish is also supposed to be better than that obtained with a fly cutting operation.
