That was uncalled-for, Peter.

Well, I don't think the author is a member here but if he is and he feels offended then I apologise for that.

No I don't own this item, I saw it on Face poke where someone else had asked the question "what is this item" his dad had brought it from an antique shop as a curiosity and didn't know what it was, so I thought I put it on here to see if anyone could help? I'm still in contact with the gent, I will ask the question when he next sees his dad if you would kindly take a video for me

Some better angle shots would be most helpful George, for example face-on with the camera about 4 feet away at a height between the top and bottom shaft. Handle end and working end. That would show the relationship of the various workings quite well. Your first view of the extra pics would be pretty good if the camera wasn't held so high.

You know, until the pic with the guy's hand on the top adjuster even the scale was difficult to tell. I thought it was a floor-standing item.
