It has some battle-scars and is, I presume, inaccurately described ... but this looks like it has potential : **LINK**
Does anyone recognise it ?

Never seen one before, but I wonder if it's a tap tapering/sharpening attachment for a tool and cutter grinder.

The scars on the nose seem to be at regular angles, I wonder if the threaded bit is a gland for hydraulics to increment a rotation. The angles look to be preset at 30, 45 and 60 degrees, could it be for sharpening/making countersinks?

Strange how so many bits of metal clag are classed as "Lathe - Myford" and anything with a flywheel advertised as "Stuart Turner". At least now, not all turning tools are suitable for Myford .

Similar thoughts to Peak 4.
Same sort of set-up as the tool-holder in the Boremasters Tiplap - but surface mounted rather than on a round shaft. The 'trough'. which. I assume, would hold the tool, seems to be limited to one width only.

And how many advertisers profess to know nothing about their offerings!

Three posts in a row reflecting exactly what I was thinking.

This looks very similar to the work holder on a small valve refacing machine I once owned.
At one time any decent garage had one as valve grinding was a standard requirement at 50k miles ( and valve lapping at pretty much every service!)
I still have the diamond fixture used to true the grinding wheel and only hung on to this in the hope that one day someone will say they need one.

I think John Paton nailed it.
