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.
