    It looks like a fishing reel to me. What happens when you turn the crank?

    Don't know, when you turn the crank do the four rings come together or spin? Maybe some kind of mixer.

    Found out!!! It is a centrifuge for a dairy or vet used to test butterfat. It has 4 metal test tubes. Patented in 1903. Let me know if anyone has them...lol thanks for the help :)

    Wow...that is pretty cool...does it still spin? or has the rust grabbed hold of the works.

    Wow that's cool! Early lab equipment. I'm going to have to share this with our daughter. She's a lab technologist.
