SCMI shaper rebuild

Postby Richard-TX » Fri Jun 15, 2012 11:15 pm

I was brought a SCMI shaper to rebuild the spindle on. If anyone offers you a SCMI shaper, just walk away. What a crap design. They do everything right until they pick the bearings for the shaper and then they use a pair of ultra narrow 6006 bearings. What were they thinking? There is no way to improve the design either.

This shaper is made for the tool collector, not for anyone that is actually going to use it.
