Berlin Double spindle Shaper
Berlin Machine Works
Very early machine maker that was later merged into the Yates American empire.
This is a really beautiful little double shaper.
The table is only 42″ x 50″ wide.
Shaft diameter is 1″
It still has babbit spindle bearings.
It was originally a line shaft powered machine.
A belt driven electric motor was added to one spindle in an attempt at modernization.
I might remove the brackets and return it to it’s original configuration.
Great condition for it’s age – Check out the decal from 100 years ago.
