    I just bought an old auto trap machine and I am having trouble determining who the manufacture is or was to get replacement parts and wiring diagram. I have attached pictures of the trap machine and if any one knows the manufacture it would be greatly appreciated. The only markings on the trap are Penfold SP55, J&AP Scott ration 50:1, Rothe Eide 16L/400, Nissei GTR GFMN-18

    Well, the gearbox is from New Zealand (http://www.penfold.co.nz/)

    -

    The motor is from Japan (http://www.nissei-gtr.co.jp/english/gtr/sentei/hinmei_search.php?product=GFMN-18)

    -

    The wiring block has a European style to it (which I would suspect would also be used in New Zealand, but I think they use wire nuts...)

    My take would be from the heavy, utilitarian design that it is more likely from New Zealand than Europe...

    Good luck

    This is only a guess, but from my "Google Fu" it looks like this may be an older Promatic Trap Machine. The ones they sell today look very similar to this and are a similar color and design.

    Here is the website I found:

    I hope it helps,
