    Man, would not want to get your fingers too close the the blades on that sucker!

    What the heck would you use it for?

    Must be an application........

    Cheers!

    PS, yes, I'm stuck in the L shop on a rainy cold night (the customers stay home) bored..............

    Stu,

    Would make a good disk sander if it was solid enough. Take the blades out, slap a sheet of paper on it, or put some leather, you like power strop, right?

    I can't figure out what that was for but man it is big. Maybe a big deli meat slicer??

    It almost looks like a rotary edge (not face) jointer that could also be used to cut mitres. Just guessing ... I've never seen one before, although the blade and face strongly resemble (are almost identical to) the way a branch chipper is built.

    cheers

    Yep. Chipper was my first thought. Maybe designed just to make chips.

    I wouldn't want to get within ten feet of that thing. It might hurt.

    Well, after a little more research, I found another one, different make, even large with three knives and a miter gauge on it.

    it seems it cuts VERY, VERY thin slices off of endgrain.

    I'm thinking it is used on mainly soft wood, as that is what a lot of the stuff here in Japan is, kind of like them super surfacers, they are for softwoods.

    We searched and searched, but could find no more info on it....
