Topic tags/keywords: question shaper antique

Other than it being an old shaper that is. (I already knew that!) :)
The label is gone, but it looks like it was green, gold and red.
Any information would be appreciated.
We would like to know brand, year and possible value.

Someone had it in a yard sale and no I didn’t buy it, I don’t have room!

I have an old Craftsman shaper that looks very similar, only the table is the open web type rather than solid.

Took a quick look over at vintage machinery, the closest I could come to was Craftsman or Atlas, both models are very similar in appearance.

Value is maybe $30, $50 or $60 with a motor, switch
and stand.

It would not be very easy to sell. Such shapers take
1/2” shaper cutters and not impressive in what they
can do compared with today’s inexpensive and powerful
routers.

Thanks everyone!
If it doesn’t go at the yard sale then a buddy will take it for $15! A bunch of cutters included (12+ HSS not carbide but what the hey!)
I will more than likely help him make it work and the I will get to use it too!
LOL! Score in some way!
