I saw this at my local auction:What on earth is it?
The leadscrew is massive, and so is the cross-feed, but they're both manual (i.e. not geared to the mandrel).
But the drive and head are tiny, and simply attached to welded angle section.
The cutter looks like one from a spindle moulder, and there are woodshavings/dust on it; wether this is from storage or use I have no idea.
I guess it was made by "someone" for a specific task - anyone got any ideas?
