It's some sort of press with a heavy wheel that spins back and forth and
presses on the work using a heavy screw.

No audio needed, just watch about 10 seconds

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


**** thats old school! 1800s technology. Has to be a bitch to set for
travel as well.

They were very common at one time...but they are tough to setup, hard
to stop, and as a result..incredibly unsafe.

Hence..they are not used in the US anymore..and havent been for
probably 100 yrs
