I was at an auction the other day and I bid on a tool up to 65 $. Not real sure IF it was a woodworking tool or not…….. I will try to describe it..
First of all I would call it a bench mouted draw knife .??
It was about 6 “ wide with a FIXED DRAW KNIFE LIKE blade facing away from you!
Underneath a 7/8” (ADJUSTABLE up and down) ROLLER.. ( like for the depth of cut….) with finger screws….
ALL CASTED IN TO ONE SOLID UNIT made to fasten to a bench / table = A casted ANGLE IRON base about 2” DOWN AND 2” BACK. A factory made unit.
IN front when you looked at it , inset were 2 thin metal straps running outward from the center only about 5/16 wide ..??
IT LOOKED TO ME LIKE YOU WOULD PUT A PIECE OF WOOD ,BRANCH OR SOMETHING AND PULL IT TWARDS YOU = THE ROLLER WOULD STOP IT FROM GOING TO DEEP.
DOES ANY ONE KNOW WHAT I SEEN.?
