    Fig. 3 Lifting Shaper


    Lift your Cincinnati Shaper with a rope Slingl Properlyplaced. The rope should bear against the COlumn, hathfront andrear as iuustrated, and not against the scrapedbearingof the ram. The ram bearing is a finely finishedsurface and must be carefully protected against damage.DO NOT USE CHAIN OR CABLE.

    Adjust the sling to lift evenly. Use a Manila rope ingood condition. A 1;" rope is large enough for 24"standard and s'maller. A 2" rope should be used for24ll Heavy I)uty and larger. If Manila rope is not a-vaLilable, use Jute rope in diameters Of 2" and 2i" re-spectively. If machine is equipped with POWer downfeed to the head, remove power down feed I)racket andguard before attaching sling.


    Remove crate and wrapping. Unpack ram guard,wrenches, and tool post in tool box. Use the enclosedpacking list for checking all items.



    Remove the vise from the table. Remove all covering.Thoroughly clean protective grease from an Parts Withkerosene.

    Go over the grease With a Cloth Wet With kerosene andallow to soak. Use a wftying cloth instead Of Waste. Astiff brush will get into the corners. Do not use anairhose--pressure will drive the dirt and grit into thebearing SUI.faces. After cleaning the ram, adjust itforward and remove from the ram bearing any greasethat might have collected at the wiper.

    Fig. 4 Leveling Sharer

    Remove skids and place machine on foundation. A solidconcrete foundation is desirable, but if not practicable,the Shaper may be set on a solid wcod floor and heldwith lag screws. Foundation plans are furnished witheach Shaper, showing the space required and locationof foundation bolts.


    Level the machine with a precision level placed on topof the table and column as shown in Fig. 4. Alwayswipe both level and leveling surface clean. Level thema.chimewiththe level crosswise to the table and length-wise on the column. Be sure rail is securely clampedduring this operation.

    The base is provided with three bearing points for easyleveling. The tiro front points coincide with the founda-tion bolt holes. The back point is halfway between therear foundation bolt holes. Put flat steel shims at thethree points as requiredto bring the Sha,per level withina thousandth of an inch per foot. After the machine islevel, grout under the base.


    On universal machines equipped with an outboard tablesupport, indicate the support guide bar before packingat the corners of the base. The indicator should beclamped to the front of the table. Table bolts shouldbe drawn tight and rail securely clamped. The sup-port g`lide bar should be indicated the full length of therail. The support guide should be parallel with thetop of the rail within.001" perft. Packunder the

    corners as required, to make the support level for thefull length. After machine is level,grout under the -base.

    After three months of operation go over the machineand draw up screws holding the transmission cover,the rapid traverse arm, and the ram guard. After sixmonths of operation, recheck your machine for level.


    Before starting the Shaper, clean return basin. Returnbasin is accessible through column door.

    Fill gear transmission chamber with a high grade, non-foaming machine oil (Viscosity 220 seconds at 100 de-grees F.) according to instruction No. 1I Fig. 5.

    Fill the return basin according to instruction No. 3,Fig.5.

    Oil should not be below sight gauge in the base whenShaper is stopped.

    Check the motor lubrication.

    For complete instruction, see Fig. 5 and Oiling Dia-gram, Fig. 7.


    Change oil 30 days after installation, thereafter onceevery 12 months. \men changing oil, clean ring mag-net and wipe out return basin and main reservoir witha cloth. Do not use waste.

Once a year removeall oil from Shaper and refill with fresh oil.


    Before starting the Shaper the following four itemsmust be performed see Figure 5 and 6 for location ofoiling points.

    1. Pill Transmission Reservoir until oil OVerflowsinto Return Basin. See Figure 7.

    2. Lubricate motor according to motor manufacturerlSrecommendations. Do not over-lubricate.

    4. ObservePressureGauge in column near clutch con- ^trol regularly. If gauge fa.ils to show pressure, checkoil level. Check oil filter every sk months.


    5. Clean and oil sliding surface of tool head.
