What is this and what is it used for

Btw: Is the hole in the floor in the first image connected to the "tool"?

Wild guess: Crystal ball mounting for NI Support!

Magic 8-ball mounting would be more accurate. (to NI Support, not to this thing)

 

The hole is unrelated. I set it on this granite block for the pictures.

Cheers

Magic 8-Ball is Jeff's thing.  Leave him out of this.

Sweet!

 

Alright next one:

 

 

 


A grinding tool head from an ancient (steam machine ) beld driven something????

 

Something to push cannon balls (or it succesors) ?

 

 

But my best guess would be a tool to fix wood for woodturning?

Well at least it seems to turn around.

If it turns and you drop some material into it it will spread out....   sugar, salt, sand (probably not), ...

Since it looks like a large version of the polisihing mandrel used by dentists, the polishing theory seems valid.

Where a mandrel that large would used exscapes me.
