Hello, My first post on the site. Newbie to model engineering but I've finally decided to give it a go. I recently purchased an Alba 1a shaper. I got the thing off ebay for £500. It seems like it is in pretty good shape but there is one thing that is baffling me and I was hoping someone might be able to help. The clutch lever I've got on my machine isn't really a lever but just a push rod. I'm sure it's not original. It doesn't actually do anything except plug the hole. No doubt I'll need to make something to get this clutch lever working but I've got no idea what it should look like. I think it must be some sort of cam that pushes the rod through to the clutch. There is a threaded hole perpendicular to the shaft but I'm still not any wiser of what the whole mechanism is supposed to look like. I'm hoping someone with one of these shapers will be able to let me know what the mechanism looks like or maybe some photos of it so I can get enough of an idea to make something to work.
