At an estate sale, sorry the only photo I can get of it. Any idea? Maybe a sliding table saw but the top(s) don’t look like they are in the same plane.

From what I can see, the grey table on the left is not part of the machine. It looks like a saw on a pedestal. The crank appears to control the arm on the right. The left side of the table has what could be part of a fence. No idea but curious.

What’s on the reddish label above and to the left of the crank?? Maybe someone there can grab a quick phone photo?

Hey, who let you in my shop to take pictures?

I go along with Rick M with his analysis.
That red label may provide some info but I cannot read it!

I have no idea, but you’d better grab it before somebody else does.

If the left hand side is a sliding table and the gizzmo has a saw blade then it may be a printers saw.
Used for accurately cutting cast type.

The machine on the pedastal looks like an OLD craftex table saw. The crank holds a pressure roller on the blade.

If the farther half folds on the closest half it is a heat press

You have two separate items. the one with crank is a Hammond printers saw

The other is a table or something else shoved under the saw.

Thanks to alittleoff I just Googled Hammond printer saw and the above came up.
