Bought it in 2016 from a chap who purchased a local OWWMr's estate. It has a 3 phase 1 1/2HP motor turning a 1/2" spindle. Missing the fence but has the cutter guard. The top is steel on a cast iron frame. Wallace Shaper No.28 is cast in to the machine, and on all 4 sides of the base the word Wallace. Spindle is damaged and bent- prognosis as yet unknown. The machine has tags from the Oregon School for the Deaf and from the Oregon Historical Society.
