Powered Miniature Adept No.2 Shaper

Sold immediately for the asking price: the most desirable of all Adept miniature shapers - the powered No.2 Model. The 2A has a useful  7" x 6" table with vertical T-slots 6-inches high and a ram travel of 6.25".
During the early 1950s, Mr. F .J. Haynes of Audenshaw, Manchester converted his hand-powered Adept No. 2 shaper to incorporate a powered ram; so impressed were Adept by this professional-looking design that they adopted a modified version of it for production. The heart of the alterations was a cleverly arranged casting bolted to the side of the ram guide that carried both pulley and gear shafts - and also performed as a guard to cover the side of the large drive gear. In excellent original condition and complete with a single-phase motor. £450
