What Is It? :
Let’s get straight to the point
You’ll need to get straight to the point to guess this one
This week’s unidentified widget was found at Smith & Co. Antiques on Warwick St, Hobart.
It appears to be a small type of manual drill or scoring machine.
The hand pictured on the left of the image is turning part of a pulley system which we think would operate the spindle.
The hand on the right of the image is operating a small level, which when pressed down, raises the small round platform towards the pointed end of the spindle.
