Anyone know what this thing is used for? No markings on it whatsoever. Came from the estate of someone who tinkered with clocks and watches.
Shop toys...
10X54" Vectrax GS20F mill with DRO & frequency drive (saved from the scrap pile).
Jet 13x40 lathe.
Powermatic 1150 drill press.
I love Craigslist!

It looks like besides sawing it will file miters.
