    Shapers are so cool. For people wondering, the reason they're not really used in production shops anymore in favor of mills is the saying "you can make anything you can imagine on a shaper... except a profit". They just take too much time compared to what you can do on a mill and labor is a giant expense these days.

    Cool to see that Fireball tools has the same type of shaping machine we had at my old workplace. One of the best machines for just ploughing material off a oversized chunk of material. The have a large diversity of usage as well. from just ripping material all the way to smooth surface finishes with the right cut and settings, our shaping machine could make a better finish than the surface grinder we had (on non-hardened materials. also the grinder was clapped out and worn )

    You should of pulled off the bell ends. Use a gear puller to pull the bearings off. Rubber mallet to smack the shift to get the housings loose. Put on new bearings (heat ) to slide on easily. Reverse order to put put together. So ur motor will run practically new.
