It's a neat piece of machinery Gerry, but nothing I'm familiar with in any fashion. I was not aware Ammco made manufacturing equipment for wood? or steel. The badge sure looks the same as the automotive tooling. That said, made me do some quick research and quick learning. This thing is really cool. I have no place nor any valid use and certainly no time to even work on one, but now I want one.:P Anyways, I'll be following you along on this.

 

The only pieces of Ammco tooling I ever used was an old automotive brake drum lathe, headlight aiming equipment and an old school automotive front end alignment machine. All of that was over 45 years ago.

 

You probably already have found this information? All have some form of contact information to reach the owners so that might help.

By typing Ammco Shaper in the You Tube Search field I ended up with several hits...maybe they'll help.

We have one in the shop, have for years.  Works well.  Most of the time it is user error that causes problems.

Thanks for sharing this thread Gerry...ya' "learned" me some new things. I like that.

Back in the day when I was a teen they used to shave the heads for the hotrods with a shaper like that. i.e. flat head Fords, and Plymouths, and Dodges. Not sure about the OHV GM's.

The shaper is now pretty much ready to make some chips. I need to get a nice period lamp.

I made a stand that really is a representation of the original that was available from Delta as an option

I am considering making a change to how the vise is mounted. As it was not an original it had to be adapted to fit the table. The previous owner made a plate the bolted to the table. Although usable in it's present form it is almost 3/4" thick and eats up a lot of height adjustment available for this small shaper. There is room to drill and tap a couple of holes in the table itself to mount the vise. As I doubt I will ever find an original vise I think I will go ahead and make this modification.

Now, to grind some tools and get busy making chips
