I'm thinking this is a nice one--can you tell me what it is?



Anyone recognize what this is? Wifey picked it up at a garage sale....
Thanks.

No idea.

Does it have any markings or graduations on it? Is there a name? Can you take some better close ups of it on all 4 sides?

The center nut has a handle on it so it is a quick release clamp.
Bottom plates are flat.
Bottom plates are chamfered so someone or something can get to a work area under the arch.

..... I think it is an alignment or assembly jig for a craftsman working with steel plate or wood sheet.

Looks like a saw filing vise but the jaws don't seem wide enough for that.

Looks like an old router table guide to me. It's standing on its face, and the bottom is to the rear of the picture.

after looking at it some more I, kinda like foxtrappers idea except maybe a planer (edger). that knob on top by the quick release looks like a screw to adjust the offset (depth of cut)... the bevel area reminds me of a planer... maybe a shaper

Also looks like it could be a fence for an old shaper.

I guess I"ll hang on to it (since it is a nice one) until someone comes along and wants to trade some KLR parts for it....

You are correct.

That's the nicest one I've seen all day.

Congratualtions!

Don't know what it is but I'd keep my wife away from garage sales if she brought stuff like that home.

Looks like it weighs 25 lbs.

This would be my guess as well.

Often you want to offset the in-feed & out-feed faces which it looks like that would do by unlocking it & adjusting the knob.

You have it standing on it's front.

my friend google says its a work guide--

Specifically, a fence for a vertical spindle shaper with a rotary head. Now I'm really thinking its a nice one for its age.

Thanks for the leads.
