Varnamo Shapers - Sweden


Manufactured into the early 1970s, shapers by the Swedish company Varnamo were of exceptionally high quality with a comprehensive specification. The EV range offered the EV-2 with a 14.5-inch stroke, the EV-3 with 18.5 inches, the EV-5 with 14 inches and the EV-6 with 30 inches.
In addition several useful accessories were available including a keyway cutting attachment; a tilting table top that could be adjusted - using a handwheel working through a screw - from any angle from 0° to 15°; an automatic vertical toolpost feed (but not on the EV models); an indexing centre set consisting of a base plate, headstock and tailstock that could swing a maximum diater of 12 inches and take 12 inches between centres; an automatic tool lifter to raise the tool on the retun sroke; a swivelling table (on all EV models) that could be swivelled from 0° to 90° in either direction from level. Used in combination with a swivel-base vice jobs could be set up at any angle desired. Automatic pumped lubrication could also be fitted, this supplying oil to the ram ways, crank gear bearings, rocker arm and crank block surfaces.
