    I did a google image search w/ no results; sent pics to my mom and dad who are antiquers. Let you know what they come back with in the AM.

    a cutter?..... not sure what it cuts... perhaps the edges of printed, bound books to make them more uniform.

    My folks have no idea, but now they want to buy it :smh: They sent screenshots to their buddy he's even more of a antiquer. He also knows/works w some Amish so maybe they'll know.

    My initial thought was some sort of press but then what would bottom hopper be for? And the odd shape up top would be weirdly specific. More I look at it it looks like it cuts something.

    Not sure why but this looks like something Bloodcrick would be able to ID. Looks like something you find in an old barn in Southern Indiana.
