Enter as much information about your CNC hardware and software as you can - it makes it easier for everyone to know what you're talking about then.

It's easy enough to upload pictures on here - see this post: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=597
Please try to reduce them to around 1024 x 768 in size (see the bit about the image resizer powertoy)

Have you checked Tony Griffiths' web site?

Picture of a Boxford here -

The Viceroy shaper was based on the 'Royal' - details here -

Is it like any of these?
I think I salvaged some drawings for the Viceroy Royal. Might take some finding though.....
