I highly doubt some of the younger ones know what a shaper is! We're getting too old.
I used to help out at a friend of mines machine shop, when he would get backed up, and he had a Cincinnati floor shaper there, which I ran a good number of times. I made a set of lathe chuck jaws on it once. Had a few old Bullard VTL's there too, that was converted from steam belt to electric.
Anyhow, for the size of this little machine, I thought it might be ideal for gun parts, since its a combination mill.
