    Just a guess, but it looks like something to do with making sausage. I don't think it is the "weapon of mass destruction" that Bush kept lying about.

    Okay, Love it, not sure, but resembles an apple shredder.

    I vote for an apple peeler! My mind is made up so don't try to confuse me with the facts!
  5. heidinors heidinors, 2 years ago
    Thank you both... note to self:
    not a weapon of mass destruction.
    Strong possibility that it is an apple Peeler....
    don't confuse blunder with any facts. :)
    And I hope your Holidays are filled with l
    oved ones and memories to last a lifetime... thank you for the warm welcome.

    Epson, I uploaded a closer very of the wheel..and I hope you have a great evening.
    Kerry, thank you for the reference.

    well i would say kerry gets the prize and you can put this bad boy to bed and write it down in your baby book as an apple peeler with missing parts -- looks like yours was manf in leominster mass rather than pa as in the ebay listing
  12. kerry10456 kerry10456, 2 years ago
    LOL, thanks epson233, but Kerry's just an old junk collector, Stanford's and Son ain't got nothing on my horde,:-)
  13. heidinors heidinors, 2 years ago
    Thank you epson.. baby book updated. :) heading to bed myself.. will dream of gears, wheels and bullet grips tonight.. :) thank you for all the valued input tonight.
  14. epson233 epson233, 2 years ago
    nighty night -- will look forward to tomorrows "put a name on that item" -- it's been fun -- thanks for the entertainment
  15. heidinors heidinors, 2 years ago
    LOL, my pleasure Epson.. I have a few more for tomorrow too...:)
  16. heidinors heidinors, 2 years ago
    Thank you all for your help.

    Sure is an apple peeler. The next model also cored the apple after the skin was off. Should have been a cover over the top that stops your fingers from getting in the gears when you crank it.
