Ok, sometimes I buy stuff for the wrong reason….It’s a quarter…It’s an estate sale…it’s in a bucket of other stuff that’s dirt cheap (so, that’s a right reason.)
This was in the last category, all I could load into a bucket for $1.00.
I can tell you that one end has “Speed Corp, Portland Or” and the other has the numbers from 1-9 around both sides of a pivot type something.

Any ideas…I don’t know…and this is probably just part of something else.

I think it was part of an old vending machine. The ones that put out boiling hot coffee that resembled hot patch asphalt. Its pretty rare from what ive heard. Most of them rotted out because they the speed at which the machine could put out consistently hot coffee.

I think this company was known for making hand saw filing guides.

Being from Oregon must be for some sort of saw thingy, I’m with Nicky.

So that’s my guess, Saw Thingy Whirly Gig.

Nicky,
I agree it may be some type of saw sharpening jig.
Now I have to figure out if it’s all there, what type of saw/blade it’s for, and how to use it.

That is definitely a thing-a-ma-giggy. A nice one at that…

It looks like a file guide for a circular blade, the cone could fit into different size bores and the hardware at the opposite end could be moved in and out based on the radius of the blade. Exactly how this works, I’m not sure, but that’s my best guess.

Bigblock,
I agree as well.
Gonna play around with it today to see how it looks with a circular blade in the cone.
Will post pictures.

Looks like it STILL could be put to good use… if all of it was there… :)

COOL TOOL…
