This industrial shaper was offered for sale on eBay in June 2003. The machine was then located in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Baxter D. Whitney & Son, Inc., of Winchendon, MA was bought out around 1955 by the Newman Machine Co. (or Newman-Whitney) of Greensboro, NC... which may have some bearing on how this machine came to work in the neighboring Southern state.

The Comatic AF 48 8-Speed Power Feed shown in the picture was not, of course, part of the original Whitney shaper. The shaper reportedly runs on 4 hp, 3 Phase and has a 1" spindle.
