It's some sort of press with a heavy wheel that spins back and forth and

What's the history of these, any is it something uncommon in the US?

I'd call it a "rotary inertia" or "worm gear inertia" press and it
is not common in North America from what I've seen.


That's because Andrew has been hoarding them all in Texas:

Seriously though, he would be a good one to call if you want one. He
seems to come across them pretty often...
