Topic tags/keywords: transpower shaper

I’m new here so I hope I’m doing this right.
I recently bought a Transpower 1” HD shaper at a estate sale. It looks to be in good shape.
I had never heard of this brand before and I see that they are now out of business. I was wondering if anyone knows where I may be able to find a manual for it. Or any info about the company.
I could probably figure it all out but a manual would sure save me a headache.

I’m new too. I also have the 3 hp Transpower shaper LD-101 and table saw LS-10. I have both of the original operation manuals. Will be glad to scan and share. After 30+ years of service, the bearings are still good. The TS needed a new motor about 10 years ago & was replaced.

I appreciate it, but I think I got it figured out. I guess Transpower was a version of Jet. So I was able to get a manual for the similar jet shaper and it seems to be correct so far.
Thanks anyway

I have a Transpower bench top drill press which I have had from about 1993 or so. I’m guessing it was made in the 80’s. I replaced the quill bearings and chuck about 5 years ago. It’s been a great tool and it’s built like a tank, very heavy. Made in Taiwan. So you probably have a good shaper there.

Yeah, they basically copied Rockwell/Delta with lots of extra cast iron in the frames. I’ve gotten very good life from the TS and shaper.

Have your say...
