the pic shows it on its side. when you lay it down, the base is spring loaded. how does it work?
and when we say laminant, what kind?

the link is slow. im on dial up. i cant see it.

I'll take a wild guess and because of the "tread like " surface , it looks like part of an old automated production mill saw , a auto-pusher , to grip and push the material..?

From c3's link above.

Nope- as I said- trimmer for laminate. Glue a sheet down, use this like a hand plane to trim the overhang flush. Like a formica top on a table.

Here is the patent application- http://www.freepatentsonline.com/3732619.pdf

now i see. sure...makes sense. dad use to make those counter tops all the time.
he used a real smelly super strong contact glue that if he accidently dropped it too soon on the surface, he'd ruin the whole counter top and have to start again.
sometimes we'd see counter tops in the snowbanks outside the shop the next morning, where he spent all day making it and didnt place the formica just right.
its why i joined the navy.....
mystery officially solved!

Really..? I had not a clue..! Do yourself a favor and use a router with proper flush-cut or tapered bit..! Finish it off ,(break the sharp edge ) with a file..!

Wood people do not love laminates , they are very brittle and would not want to be the poor guy that had to use that tool..! Maybe on softer materials like (wood-veneer) and even then , woods like ash , oaks ,they do not cut clean some times.!
A very Kool conversation piece no doubt..! :)

You have some major collection of interesting and unique things..! Mind boggling !
