In addition to the sparrow trap, mentioned in another post, I took a chance and bought an old Rockwell 43-110 shaper yesterday at the same garage sale. The power cord was in bad shape so I couldn’t verify it ran before I bought it, but knowing I already had a jim-dandy bird trapping contraption I figured I was on a roll. As soon as I got it home and unloaded (the stinkin thing is heavy!) I cobbled a power cord together, plugged it in and thankfully it spun right up. The bearings sound fine and nothing has more than a light coat of surface rust on it.

Anyone have any experience with these?
