I inherited a bunch of machines to complete my collection—a Delta belt sander, a Delta drill press, an INCA jointer/planer, and a router table. I’ve figured out where all of the loose parts go, except for this:

It doesn’t seem to match any of the power tools—wrong color scheme, etc. The large black knob activates a rack-and-pinion mechanism that moves the arm along. The arm is spring loaded, has a set screw that allows me to adjust the maximum height of the arm, but can be depressed against the spring to be lower.

This might be completely unrelated to anything I have, and a piece of something else. The only identifier on it is the number 9001 stamped on the arm

Thanks for any input!

Looks like a jig for a sharpener where the tool is clamped in the plate and it slides back and forth on the guide rods.

My Tormek has a similar attachment.

Thanks. Would this somehow be attached to the belt sander (which I assume could sharpen tools), or is it really designed for something else?

I don’t know for sure, Harley. It could mount to a bench grinder too. I’ve never seen that exact item.

That’s the sort of thing Garrett Wade used
to sell back in the 90s when they sold INCA
machines nationwide. At the time it was a
dominant supplier of fine woodworking tools
in the states.

Sweet! That’s an exact match!

Now I just need to figure out how to use it, and whether I can fit it to my belt/disc sander or gift it to my brother in law who claimed the actual grinder

Loren always comes through with even the most obscure finds. I don’t know how he does it, but he’s a champ.
