Do you recognize this Mystery Farm Tool?
Wood base measures 9 inches by 4 inches. Thickness of base beneath the curled metal plate tapers from 1 inch to 3/16 inch. Crank turns a pair of bevel gears. Tension on the gears can be adjusted with a setscrew. The curled metal pate apparently guides material into the gears. Two countersunk holes in the base allow attachment to a work surface with flathead screws.
