Shaping Machine

An old favorite brought back to life by the addition of CNC components.

In this model constructed by Eric Rumbo and shown at the QSMEE Field Day December 2012 is designed to cut clock gears and other related items (yes we know there are easier ways to do it) but the concept of automated depth of cut and forward and reverse motion along with automatic indexing make this a very interesting and practical project for the enthusiast.

Castings and plans are available for this item but we don't do electronics stuff (yet).
