The South Bend shaper manual is the one we sell as the best general guide to using a shaper. Although, of course, the instructions on settings and adjustment are specific to the South Bend machine, most of its content is applicable to running any shaper. There is a particularly good section on cutting tools and holders and annotated diagrams showing the names of parts. 23 well-illustrated pages - but no parts list. £18
