From a google search it is “to set spindle tooling in a vertical and horizontal axis and it is designed to set the position of the block in relation to the shaft position on the machine having been set to your moulder. i.e. you can set the block in the same position on the moulder as on the setting stand via the dial in gauges.”

I hope you can follow that because I can’t. More of a machinists tool, I guess.

It is for presetting molding heads. put the head on the shaft. using a template or indicators set the knives so that they are consistent with each other. remove the head and move on to the next. that way one doesn’t need to try to set the knives in the machine. once the head is installed on the machine spindles only depth of cut and cut location need be set.

A “Setting” Stand? Never heard of such a thing… I have no idea whatsoever of what it is. :)
