Three of my hobbies are collecting old engines, machining and trap shooting. I have found a way to combine all three. The enclosed pictures show the end result. A 3-5 International LB with self-designed-made trap machine.

It will throw single and double targets over 40 yards, and is adjustable for both angles and length of throw. Restocking time is approximately one second. I have taken your magazine for some time and attended various shows. I have seen many applications for old engines, but have not seen one driving a trap machine. I wonder if this is a first?
