  • What is this machine?

    I got this machine a few months ago and have no idea what it does or what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It's a cat stretcher for when they have a bad back. You have an advanced model with gauge and emergency stop.

      It appears to be an early flux capacitor, possibly built by Doctor Emmett Brown in the 80s.

        You mean 1880s, right Mark?




        why did you buy it if you don't know what it does? If it was given to you did

            i got it from a landlord i was working for, he was cleaning out his garage that he rents and this was left behind.

            it would probably cost me 500$ in shipping but ok

              looks like some type of hydraulic press / extrusion machine with a cycle counter.

              any model # or maker id?

                  A guess is it is off of an assembly line somewhere. As the other poster said - more pics.

                          It looks like some kind of hydraulic press... used for punching, die pressing, crimping etc.; depends on what kind of die it may be fitted with.

                          If you're going to play around with it, be very careful where you put your hands and fingers.
