    This looks like either a gun cleaner or reloader it has a Browning belt and there is a handle that moves the piece in and out and the other handle turns the wheel, this is not a circumcision machine does anybody have an idea of the year and function

    Welcome to FTF. It's hard to see. Better (closer) pics would help. It looks like it might be an old case trimmer or something.

    Looks like a device to make bullets seated in a case, concentric

    Or could be a chamfering device. It looks like it holds a case or bullet, rotates it precisely and presses something down on to it

    it would also help to know the size or have a coin in the pic so we get an idea of the size. What is the wheel made out of?

    I'm guessing it should mount on a vertical surface and would be used to crimp paper shotgun hulls.

    But the oil cap suggests it would mount horizontally.

    Yup, that's what it is. I was trying to remember where I saw that lever "shell pressing" assembly. You usually see it in the slammer old roll crimpers

    Thanks Tom that helped me out and to everyone, it has a browning belt not sure if that picture you posted up, gives more details of the manufacturer, just didn't know if it was made by browning. In any case I have no use for a shotgun shell roll crimper, if you know anyone interested, it is for sale, I'm at stiv76@email.com

    Would be a great display piece for someone's gun room or fireplace mantle, especially one of us oldtimer re-loaders.
