Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


No doubt, Stieri produced this in 1943 to train machinists in the shortest possible time for war production. Contents include classification and construction of shapers; shaper tools; holding the work; elementary shaper operations; the vertical shaper; elementary vertical shaper operations; description of a modern shaper; shaper maintenance; description of a modern vertical shaper; general description of the Pratt & Whitney shaper drive to the machine; and safety rules.

This little handbook (we've enlarged it from its original size) is quick and dirty. In chapter four, for instance, the sections are titled: testing the work seat; testing solid jaw for squareness; setting vise parallel with direction of stroke; selecting the proper tool; taking a horizontal cut; adjusting the work; adjustment of stroke; and on and on.

This not only tells you how to run a shaper, it does it quickly and clearly. You get a how-to book that is easy-to-read. If you have a shaper, get a copy of this. Or if you intend to build Gingery's shaper, this is a must-have companion book.
