As I was browsing the junk boxes at the local “FLEA” market today I saw a “FLUTED” container looking back at me :yikes: and said I need that, and for a $1.00 it was mine. When I got home I compared it to my 2 1/2HP Fluted hopper Aermotor. It has the same look :uhoh: , the same number of flutes :) (12), it's made of heavy gauge sheet metal, 7" across the top and about 5" high. Now, all I need is a water cooled fluted hopper model Aermotor or something similar to put it on :brows: . The hunt is on for the rest of this elusive item. Has anyone seen or know of one :confused: .
If it casts a shadow, it can be made :shrug: .

That looks like a Christmas tree stand (minus the legs) we had back in the '60s. Does it have a spike sticking up in the bottom?

John: You are right :) . Its a vintage Christmas tree stand part. Spike is gone, but we need to repurpose what we can, and for a $1.00 :shrug: .
