    Don't even get me started! I just had a prostate exam last week, and I'm quite certain this is what was used! <wink>

    What an odd device, the physics of which I haven't quite figured out, no clamping device, yet the handle affair indicates a means of applying pressure so that the crank (which appears to be attached to a cutting device ) can screw inward.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!

    can you ask if there's a name on it? patent number? any other info?

    the long handle below the crank looks like it might be to put it in or out of gear. is there a drill bit or masonry bit on the tip? can't tell....also wondering about the butterfly nut by the bit. looks like it might be some type of depth stop for that one tooth that sticks out.

    A WAG, but I think it was used to cut a saddle radius in the end of some kind of tubing. There is a cutter, and half of the clamp used to secure the tubing. Picture the clamp rotated 90*
    For making bamboo furniture?
    The cutter is spring fed, the handle apparently is for withdrawing it when the cut is complete.
