Not the first owner of this shaper but have just got it running. Cut a flat on scrap aluminum-- amazing finish. I need to make some parallels for my mill/drill from 3/8" aluminum stock but need to know how to adjust the stroke. Are there any operators/parts manuals available?
Have a good day

Did a quick peak and we don't seem to have one here in Downloads, but there is one at the Vintage Machinery site. Not terribly extensive, but it does go over basic operation and adjustments. Also some nice drawings at the end and parts lists. Might be more, I just looked at the one. Here's the link:

here you go rock_breaker
and some other reading materials

I especially like the US Army shaper manual although it is for a South Bend Shaper .
other than a few differences, both shapers operate under the same principles

enjoy!

Thanks guys!
I found the adjustment information and will give it a try tomorrow.
I have to learn how to drive this computer better, having some problems when I tried posting pictures. Frustration costs about $75.00 just to get it in the door so will keep trying.
Have a good day
