Bought this tool at a fleamarket today even though I don’t know what it is.

I’m not sure if this tool is a woodworking tool or metal work tool.
The small blade has H.S.S. Crobalt stamped on it.

Hmmm. My guess is that it’s some kind of a handle/holder for an auger type drill bit.

Probably not a tap handle, the tool location is offset from the centerline of the handles. This would put the axis of rotation out of line with the tap which would break taps.

How does the tool mount in the handle?

My guess would be a handle/guide for sharpening tool bits for metalworking. The H.S.S Cobalt tool bit is a high speed steel (hss) tool bit for metalworking.

The tool bit slides into an opening that is similar in size to the bit. Then the thumb screw secures it.

Have your say...
