What is it?

I picked this up at a yard sale just cause. It looks like it may be a slitter or bead roller. Maybe for cutting circles? Anybody have better knowledge?









Thanks,

Richard

Well it is definitely set up as a circle cutter. However, every one that I have seen is on a single set of ways so that they always stay in alignment. Maybe this one is a low price model or something or maybe it used to have a base that broke and someone just bolted it to that wood. But either way is should still work fine as long as the cutting dies are sharp.
Nice find.

I have seen these used to roll a lip for a end cap to be spot welded. with a bit of creativity I could see rolling a radius on the perimeter with this. good find!

Yeah, that's definitely a ring and circle shear. A little cleanup, and that should be a nice machine for you.
