Came across this on CL and had to bring it home.
Patented in 1916 and the seller even had a copy of that patent included.
Anvil, vice. pipe jaws.grinding wheel, drill with a 1/2 inch hardie.
The grinder and drill offers three speed choices by selecting on which post you mount the handle.
The stand was originally from a local creamery.

Neat. Gonna do a lot of work with it?

I always wonder at the urge to make ‘everything’ tools. It seems that none of them ever catch on, but people keep trying to think up new ones.

Those are very hard to come by with the extra bits… I have one without all the stuff I should give you just to put with that one.. My understanding is the outfit that made these went on to become the Sunbeam mixer company

I dont know what the collector market is not that the economy crashed but at one time that set up was worth pretty big bucks..

Whatever you are, be a good one.

Thanks, everyone.

I will never ‘use’ it, but I still give it little pat or two every time I walk by :)

My dad had a shopmate with all the attachments when I was growing up. Spent most of his shop time setting up. Not me. I have three drill presses, 5 hand drills and 5 routers. When I want to use a tool I want to work on something, not do setups. I don’t mind laying a tool down and grabbing another but I haye getting ‘ready’ to do something.

The kinda do everything and don’t actually do anything well tools are just interesting to look at and think about for me.

I have two of these neat vise’s.
They also take a gear-box between the jaws and connects to the crank.
The gear-box has a flex shaft that runs the sheep shears.
