Phantom Shaper


I recently acquired an old Newey Engineering shaper. It was tucked into a corner of a barn for years, so it was pretty rusty, but I got cleaned up and running. But I can't find any info on it anywhere, like it doesn't exist or they only made one and I inherited it. Anyone seen one of these before?

A Google image search does not yield any results that I suspect pertain to what you found.

Post up a picture.

That was right after I got it moved. It's in working order now.

Wow.

Probably more steel in that thing than 10 of today's similar tools.

Nice find.

Yeah this thing weighs a ton. My case skid steer was on the two front wheels the whole time I was moving it. I do plan on restoring it, that's why I'm looking for info

Is it a single head unit or multiple heads?

Wow, that is a monster for a single head unit----heavy duty---

The innards should not be to complicated---as a machine goes, it is a fairly simple mechanism----

Yeah I've figured out the workings of it. My test parts were two jaw pads for an old rock island vise I found in the scrap pile where I work. I was looking for info on the oiling system for the most part. This one has been modified by someone and the oiler for the bull gears inside is just plain gone, the hole plugged with an aluminum plate.

That's an excellent site! But no dice on my machine. Not even a listing for the manufacturer. There's a couple references online, but it's the same as me, guys looking for info on their shapers. So I guess I've got one of few made. I'd better not break it!
