Instructions - Shaper

Number four in the machine tools series is this reciprocating shaper. This is one of the fiddlier models, needing some careful alignment to get the rear assembly lined up. It also uses a fairly uncommon new piece, the 50018e Minifigure Weapon with Bar and Stud. It is part of a tools multipack in three sets from 2019/2020, or you can pick it up individually for about 25p.

Like the drill press and mill, there are several sub-builds in this model and as always, there’s an image gallery below or you can download the full PDF and parts list for printing, saving, or shredding for your hamster.
