A package of information about Flexispeed, Meteor and Simat lathes,
including handbooks and drawings, is available
A very rare machine, with few found, the only known advertisements for the Flexispeed shaper was published by the well-known Barnsley dealers Garner during 1951. Built only three-quarters of a mile from the factory producing Adept shapers, the Flexispeed fell between that Company's products in having a 5-inch stroke, the Adept 1A having 4" and the 2A a more useful 6.25".
A number Flexispeed shapers must still exist and should you have one (they are easily identified by a tool slide of distinctive shape) the writer would be interested to hear from you.
