Title: Interesting hand shaper
Post by: shipto on March 13, 2017, 06:10:43 PM
This has come up on my followed search on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shaper-Machine-/222434574120?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276 (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shaper-Machine-/222434574120?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276) I doubt its worth the price it looks like its going to reach but still interesting, might even be tempted at half the price  :lol:

Looks good to have, but i have seen mechanised shapers for not much more than double that price. Assuming it stays under 100.

I remember it was a perfecto wasnt it? They look far more usable than this one looks, i have done a quick search and cant find anything like it.

Shipto - not sure what it was to be honest - it was my grandads and he had some theory it was and ex-military machine but I never looked at it that closely. It was a pretty heavy casting for its size. Perhaps Jon will find some markings or something when he gets it cleaned up.

I remember using it with grandad - you need to change arms every now and then or its knackering. Thinking about it, I was being used for cheap labour!
