This is a second attempt to post the reply, because it looked like the
first attempt did not go through.
This is a really wild guess, but....
It looks like it might be an adapter sleeve for an outboard arm on a big
horizontal milling machine to allow a smaller diameter arbor to be used
than the milling machine was designed for. I don't think that it is made
to mount a cutter on, because the inside diameter is not keyed to be
driven by the arbor. The last picture identifies it as being made by the
Cincinnati Milling Machine Co., so I am assuming that this is something
else you got from Govliquidation.com
Oh! That's easy! Ignoramus needs money. So he is posting questions
and "inventions" (like the anvil) that need some pictures for explanation.
On his web-pages, he sells adv. space to Google. And he gets a cent for
every view. That's the reason why he's posting at least two links a week to
Also, I do not normaly get paid for every view, I only get paid if
someone clicks on the ads. Usually, based on my analysis, people who
come from newsgroups do not click on ads very often (why would they
want stuff advertised on those pages, they are simply curious to see
what a person is doing). So, if you do not want to benefit the
publisher (me), just do not click on the ads.
The other kind of people who come to my webpages are visitors who are
referred by google searches (for instance searching for "homemade
intverter for tig" or "12 foot starcraft seafarer" etc). Those tend to
click on these ads a lot because they are looking for approximately
the stuff that's on those pages and that the ads are for (say parts
for Starcraft Seafarer boats).
I have another set of pages which are my own original content, which I
never advertize anywhere, but that describe various oddball things
that I come across (800 or so pages). The only visitors to those pages
are people referred by google (and occasionally other search
engines). These pages have absolutely unbelievable clickthrough rates
and CPM, partly because they only get very interested visitors and
have very high quality of content (in google's view). That's partly
compensated by very low quantity of visitors, but still it is a good
thing considering the amount of work put into it (next to none after
initial setup). The pages describe these things as well I could
