I was given a wood shaper / router with blades by a neighbor of my father whom was moving.
it is a router table with external motor, so no real advantage there. But the can of bits and the fact the shaft extends more than most routers I have seen makes it something that may be of use to the Hack Factory. Chris O do you think you have a use for it? as it stands now it is mounted on a board so 2 feet wide by 3 to 3 1/2 long, simple motor and pulley set up, from some place in the 60s and a coffee can of well loved bits.
This could also have a sanding tube mounted to work on finishing wood.
