What is this?

I ran across a Craigslist post where a guy restores old power tools. All of the tools were 1940s Delta models that I saw and were absolutely perfect. One of the tools he restored was a damnifiknow or thats what I call it. Maybe some of you can tell me what it is and does. heres a pic.

For those of you who would like to see some great tool**** of restored Delta Unisaws, band saws and such, they are worth a look, heres the CL link

https://macon.craigslist.org/tls/d/m...860453923.html

P.S. My best guess is its sore kind of punch

Everything i build comes with a redneck warranty. If it breaks you get to keep both pieces.

Without the arm it looks more like a boat anchor.

Agreed, radial arm saw motor...

All the photos show very impressive restoration work. When they were originally made, the manufacturers started with solid blocks of cast iron, then carved the tools from them. Okay, just kidding, but sometimes that's what it seems like.

Thank you for sharing it with us.
