    I've heard that "a shaper will make everything but money". Got no experience myself.

    That phrase likely coined by contour bandsaw manufacturers. Demise of one, very close to rise of other. Both do things other cannot quite as well.

    Not only tremendous size and general facility, but note the floor. World's best industrial surface; wood bricks, they're set on end.
    At lower left is what appears to be a drain, probably isn't. It's a cast iron floor plate, near certainty of mounting in front of portable boring mill, large radial drill, or functions as serious assembly table.

    Oh my no, real as can be. Those shops full of Naval personnel [MR = Machinery Repairman] and a few civilian contractors, under the eye of a Naval Officer. I've worked in several. Long Beach, Puget Sound, San Diego, Coronado, Terminal Island [USCG].

    I wouldn't go so far as to say too clean by any means.
    Expand the picture to its fullest then scroll around there is some small cylinder laying on the floor not too far away from the electric motor mounted on the cast iron bricks Also around the shaper there is some debris as well as the swarth from the last or current shaping project.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Look at all of finger/appendage crushing things exposed, an OSHA mans nightmare!
    My brothers friend was partners in a machine shop with a WWll vet in the 70's, One night after some adult beverage had been consumed my brothers friend was riding the ram of a very large shaper like a mechanical bull
