    Hi Greg,

    I always place my pictures onto the forum servers ! And I've always got a copy on my machine plus the backups. I've never quite trusted third parties to keep them safe, and the Photobucket fiasco is diabolical rip off. No way would I pay them any money ! There are a number of other free photo hosting sites around if that is what you prefer. I also suspect that somewhere down the line the pictures will get sold on...
    Best Regards:
    BaronJ.

    If all you're doing is facing that piece for surface finish, not bulk material removal, try using a vertical shear tool. It's a 5 minute grind from hss and with the right speeds and feeds can produce an amazing finish. I don't like the look of that tool you posted. It just doesn't look right, nor particularly sharp.

    Default book

    This little book describes the shaper tools in detail, its an oldie but a goodie . The book has drawings of the correct shaper tool holders , they are hook shaped in order to place the tool tip behind the centre line . The book is easy to find on ABE books .

    Baron, thanks, yep - I know. It was only two threads that I did that I specifically embedded the pics so they would be large and not attachments. Such is life.

    Mettle, I thought it **was** a shear tool! ) That made me laugh! Righto. I'll look again at the books I have. Morrisman, thanks. That is one of the books I have! I tracked it down after finding the name 'duplex' cropping up all over. Gear cutting on a shaper etc etc.

    Btw, here is another golden oldie:

    If you've not sniffed around archive.org for old machinery / machining books ... have a look. You can download them. Lots there.

    Go to page 54 in this old gem - even the library ticket stampy thing is there with its stamps! Looks like first borrower was 3 Dec 1947. )

    A note here. I've not gone back to make anything flat with the shaper since but I have put my newly made slotting attachment into action (the workpiece shown in the OP was for that). I noticed the gibs on the downfeed had a lot of play in them. Adjusted now. That is suspect nr one for now. Suspect nr two is vice-osaurus - it ain't that stable. I'll be making some tnuts as an learning/debugging exercise in the coming weeks and will report back what I find.

    Thanks again all.

    I'll post some pics of the slotting attachment in the "basket case grinder" thread.

    (edit: Brown and Sharpe No 2 Surface Grinder - the basket case)

    Greg.
