How To Build a Small Metal Shaper Plans
These plans are for a manual metal shaper.
A metal shaper is indispensable for certain machining operations where flat surfaces must be produced within very close limits, such as machining flats on castings, cutting keyways, rabbets and grooves and reducing the thickness of stock to a given dimension.
This one has a 3-in. stroke, is manually operated and has been especially designed to reduce machine operations in the construction to the minimum. Cold-rolled-steel flats and squares are utilized for nearly all operating parts and the frame and base.
These parts you can purchase cut to size with "store" edges at a very reasonable cost per piece. Joining edges and flat surfaces can be finished by hand to remove saw or flame marks and square the surfaces for fitting.
These plans were scanned from an old magazine and converted to a convenient downloadable digital PDF file format.
