How to build a Nudge burner oil. Someone else chime in with more. Page 1 of 3 1 2 3 Last Jump to page: The time now is Building the Shaper Step-by-Step. They are from an old car transmission I tore apart and broke in shzper pieces to fit into the melting pot. So the cutting head goes back and forth and cuts shapes materials.

gingry What ever cutter you put in it. Had the same kind of tool holder and everything. I had to look the dictionary to check some words If the spelins rong blam the wife! The major modifications i did from the gigery design was changing it over from a chain drive to a gear drive. Results 1 to 10 of I didn’t know splines and dovetails were called that way, even though I’ve seen many times.

I actually never really have used the machine which is sad to say. Similarily, for the pinion, it didnt have a way to mount it to the drive sharf, so I carefully welded a set screw collar onto the pinion face so that I could securly mount it to the shaft. I am glad I found this-I too, have gintery this shaper and I wish I had found it sooner as I could have saved myself about 40 bucks on the bull wheel.

This ensures the bore and the end of the ram are perpendicular. Two excellent web references for building the Shaper Step-by-Step are http: I wish i gingsry pictures of the foundry fired up and working with the molds and molten aluminum. I used the gear as a steel core and poured molten aluminum into it to give me a mounting surface lol.


Gingery’s approach to making the rotating head was to cast the ram around a steel core. Gingery Metal Shaper Author: He then used the lathe to get the end of the ram perpendicular to the ways, but unless the core is exactly parallel to shpaer ram ways, the end of the ram and the hole created by the core are not perpendicular. However the photos and explanations apply to whether you build the Shaper a’la Gingery or modify it or use other machine ry.

If you look close you will see sha;er i remedied this. Both gentlemen used commercial lathe s and mill s in the construction and both made useful and intelligent modifications. Here is a video of one in action gingsry mine The operator can set: I was lucky enough to have access to a full sized milling machine at teh time to do the critical spacing of the holes. I fully intend to adopt modifications and suggestions from both sites in my Shaper shapeg have started my own drawings and plans to take into account the variations.

Never heard gingrey it before but I like full metal machines whatever they make 8. If you are not having fun, you are not doing it right.

The gears are from an old motorcycle engine. The toolbit is also held sha;er a clapper block, so that on the back stroke, the toolbit can flip up slightly and will not be dragged forceably against the work on the return stroke. Mechanical assemblies attached to teh bull wheel, advance a rachet wheel every revolution and slide gihgery table a hair each stroke.

He set out to build his own metal working shop from scratch gimgery nothing but common hand tools. So all the aluminum pieces you see in the pictures below were hand cast by me. Walkthrough of my machine: Thanks for posting this! A lot of filing and scraping of the ram is required to get a good fit with the rotating head.


building the Gingery shaper

HSS or what ever they need to be made out of for the job at hand. They were usually ground different.

A simpler approach is to bolt the ram to the lathe carriage and with a boring tool in the lathe spindle, bore out the end of the ram cast with a slighly smaller core or drill out on the lathe. Patterns always look interesting, but what does a metal shhaper

All in all, it was an awesome project and a great way to learn about how to design functional things with minimal tooling. I found that trying to find what I need and then make it work with what I have, is more trouble than designing what I want and doing it. I got bored when it came whaper the final tuning of it, but its been about 12yrs since I made it gintery i still cant bring myself to sell it or give it away lol.

Gingery Metal Shaper

Forum Metal fabrication work Machines and manual machining building the Gingery shaper. Based on sjaper 1. I meant what kind of material the cutter is made of. Tomorrow I will cast a gear or two to change mine over to gear drive. Casting your own metal parts is an extremely powerful capability. As the ram moves forward and back, the toolbit scrapes and peels off layers of metal by sheer brute force.

That kind of thing.
