It's a cut off tool for cutting hose and tubing to length. Mounts to the side of a bench or stand - unroll however much hose or tube you need, open the tool and lay it in, and whack it off.


That's close but not close enough :o

It's used for cutting "Rope"

Yes, I know, it can be used also for tube and hose. Multi-use tool.

At the time it was used in stores they didn't sell hose and tubing as we know it today.

zelph's toenails, (or just for zelph its a egg opener) :roll:

Really? The ones I've seen for cutting rope had the bottom edge sharpened as well as the top, so the rope would not fray as badly - which is why I did not think that this one was intended for that purpose.
But it's been a good long while since I've seen one.
The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.

The bottom edge is not visible. It's part of the main body that the movable arm is attached to. The little dohicky in the foreground looks to be a supporting edge for the rope for when it's cut. The rope would be fed through from the side that the photos were taken. The rope would be taped at the point to be cut. Once cut, both ends would have tape on them to prevent fraying/unraveling.
