I've been rooting around a bit and I've found the Elliot10m manual, the Alba is the previous model, and is pretty similar. On the pic below, part N20 is the locking pin for the swivel, it has to be removed before you can remove the tool holder head.

Cheers, Matthew

I don't know if you'ii have to join the Yahoo shaper group to acess the files section, but there is an Alba 1a shaper manual in there!

Cheers, Matthew
Tools / Alba 1a shaper question
« Last post by Rick O Shea on Today at 12:48:36 PM »

Hello All,

I recently bought a Alba No1 shaper and have a bit of a question about the clapper box assembly, I have removed the box assembly  and now would like to remove what I presume is the rotating  assembly that holds the clapper box on to the arm.

 I have removed both the screws  but the rotating section is incredibly tight and I cannot remove it. I wonder if any one could offer some advice and if possible a scan of the parts drawings showing that bit.

very best wishes

 Hi Guys
                 I agree, with Pete and use a split collar. I keep various sizes of split collars, and some blanks to make specials.

                                                                  Cheers David

 Hi Bob

                 Nice work, I like the case restoration. What solvent do you use in your ultrasonic cleaner ?

                                      Cheers David

Hi there, Peter,

Thank you for your post.  In answer to your question - Simon was eager to get his polishing job finished and so I didn't investigate the stator configuration closely.  It was enough at the time to just check the windings for freedom from damage and to fit a replacement capacitor.  I can't remember the details of the winding resistance measurements but they seemed appropriate to a single phase machine run & start windings.
