I have just recently joined this group which I found during searches for
information on 6 - 8 inch Shaper machines. My search was for any information
on Shaper machines in general and since I found this group I thought someone
may direct me to more information on general setup and tooling. One
particular item I am very interested in is a device for gear making. I have
a plan for it which was created back in 1950 and although is still probably
capable I thought there could be an improvement on the devices design since.
The article is referred to at
with the title SHAPER-CUT, halfway down the page.
My question is, is there an improved design or similar device?
The device allows 1 single formed tool to cut accurate gears of any size
from 12tooth - rack.
