Here are a few pictures of a Sheldon 12" shaper I just bought. It was a nearly 400 mile round trip and made for a long day. The shaper is in decent condition and has a single phase motor which is not original to the machine. Since there were no pictures of Sheldon shapers, I thought I'd submit some.
