“For work of moderate size shaping machines, which are more recent indroduction than either slotting or planning machines, both of which they resemble in theiraction, are in some respects more convenient. The slide which carries the tool is in their case horizontal, and its short but variable strokes are in a direction transverse to the bed, along which it can travel, just as a slide-rest travels along a lathe bed.” —The Encyclopedia Britannica, 1903
