Your shaper reminds me of my 1950s Delta table saw and jointer combination which still works fine, but some of the motor wiring is deteriorating.

      Just this past Tuesday I came across a 1950s vintage Craftsman 1/2 HP 
shaper for just $35.  It was the type with the cast iron top with the 
rectangular holes, which was considered to be an accident waiting to happen.  I 
would have bought it but I have a much nicer one from Grizzly.

And finally, as I approached the gate, it occurred to me that is ironic
that Sears stores are rapidly disappearing, but their products, like
this 50-yr-old fence and gate, continue to serve well.

I put a Leica Elmarit-R 90/2.8 on my Oly E-1 and stepped outside to
enjoy some sunshine, and discovered that some Spring wildflowers were
popping up.

The first one appears only occasionally, a Grape Hyacinth:

The second is called Spring Beauty:

The third is a common weed, known by the name Corn Speedwell, and other
similar names:
