Default Information on Vernon Shaper

I have an old Vernon shaper and would like to see if there is any literature for these machines.

Pictures???
I assume you are talking about a "mechanical shaper", not a wood shaper????

My blacksmithing friends and I have gotten mechanical shapers running in two separate threshing show blacksmith shops over the last couple of years. They are fun to demonstrate to the public.

What are your personal goals for it?

There is no user manual or good information on Vintage Machinery. I am an old school machinist and have ran many large shapers over the years. I am curious if there are many of these Vernon shapers left and where they might be. I intend to use mine for normal shaper operations, key ways, key seats, splines, flats......
