Does anyone know what this shaper is, it's stroke is about 8 inch off the top of my head.

Flat ways on the ram and table etc not dovetail

Looks like a little lever on the back perhaps sets the speed to 3 or 4 presets (I'm guessing due to its proximity to the input shaft)

Can be set to index left/right or up/down

Nice piece of kit, I'm hoping it'll be in my garage very soon, I've always wanted a shaper although I'd envisioned it would be vice mounted and hand operated, but what I really need is just a bigger workshop! laugh

Well I'd googled for hours before posting this and now after half an hour of looking I've found it!

Looks like it's a nice 10 inch shaper with a few neat little features. A chap called Mark correctly identifed it by PM but I'd not checked, thanks to mark and as I said to him, I look forward to getting it and hope it's all present and correct.... And if it isn't cheeky a new project is born (The shaper works I've just not explored all the features as I don't know what I'm looking at)

It looks as if the Denford guys had certainly seen an Eriksen shaper up close before they designed the Royal. The Royal's under-drive is better than the rear drive of the Eriksen, the Two-speed + two belt steps on the Royal are a wash with the three speeds of the Eriksen, but there's a distinct resemblance there.
