This is another nice little instrument of torture, picked up from a car boot sale for less than a fiver. Any guesses as to its use.

Looks to me like some type of grinder or mincer, obviously remains static, hence clamp.

Not a grinder or mincer John. But it is for food.

I wonder if the writing on it gave it away?

It's a joke isn't it? Prices couldn't have risen that much surely. In the architectural stuff, those sets of three coat hooks we used to throw them on the fire and when the ashes were raked out the hooks went in the scrap brass. Occasionally the lads might get a couple of quid for one. The door handles were left on the doors and the doors were sold for about a fiver each off the site.
