Flather shaper info

Just picked up a 16" Flather shaper. Looks to be in pretty decent
shape. Someone added a transmission and a motor somewhere along the
way.
Looking for any info on this machine.
Searching throught the archives Gunner speaks pretty highly of this
machine.
Thanks
JW

Large equipment auction in mid-Wisconsin. Incredibly out of place for the rest of the auction line. Suprised it cost me as much as it did really. Had a few other large old machine tools, but for the most part backhoes, dozers and such is the typical fare. This is a regular consignment auction house, so someone was apparently dumping some equipment from some old shop somewhere.
Had a big old American lathe. 12" x 144". Change gear, flat belt machine. $500. Too much for me. I bought the shaper for $100.
Now I need to decide if I am going to keep this one and sell off my Rockford, or just turn this one for a few bucks. I really need to have a garage sale pretty soon. I'm starting to accumulate too many duplicates.
