It You Want to Produce
Grade Gears at Less Cost t
Your Competitors, Install
Gear Shaper.
You will require fewer machines, which-means_ less capital invested, fewer operators and less space; and
you will get smoother running gears.
If your competitor already uses these machines, it is the only method whereby you can keep pace with him.
just how much the Gear Shaper would earn in your own shop we will tell you upon request. Send blue . .
prints or, better still, ask us to have our representative call.
Remember:
That the Gear Shaper uses a theoretically correct generating cutter, all distortion due to hardening having
been ground away.
That only one is required for each pitch, which is correct for any number of teeth.
That th. *- 'chine shown herewith will produce from 25 t r cent. more and better gears than any other ~gt.,~,
otter.
That our gear _gutting department is at your service for demonstrating the efficiency of this machine upon
your own work.
