This mousetrap was inspired by a Youtuber named Shawn Woods, who showcases different mouse and rat trap designs in his Mousetrap Monday video series. I sent this trap to Shawn, and he has featured it on his channel.

Note: My printer was too small to print the lid so I had to split the lid and the rest of the trap up to print it. The 3D files posted here are not split, and the lid snaps in place securely.
This particular trap design is over 140 years old.
Check out the video of an original antique trap in action on Shawn's channel!
This is a real working live catch trap that is capable of catching multiple mice in one night.
To complete this build you will need (7) #10x2.5" wood screws for the bars.
Trap dimensions: 164mmx140mmx70mm
Supports are needed for the main body in a few spots
