What is this object?

Can anyone identify this piece of equipment? Made by Stanley.


I think it's for cutting boards at an angle.


yes, a miter saw.  A hand saw would be inserted in the two vertical guides and adjusted to the right or left to set the angle.  


Although most people use this except for fine cabinet work:


MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! A 10" dual-bevel sliding compound miter saw. With positive stops on the miter wheel. And a laser guide? 

Wait, I gotta go take a cold shower.

 Well, some of us hate Dewalts, and our cabinets come out just fine.  Bosch and Makita are my choices.

 I dropped my beloved Hitachi compound miter saw on a cold day a couple years back. I watch the plastic handle shatter in horror and disbelief. 

I replaced it with a DeWalt, but didn't get the laser guide. I sometimes regret that decision.


Thanks everyone. Would anyone like to own this fine piece of equipment? It’s looking for a new home. Cleaned up a little, it would look great on a mantle. 


I wonder when it’s from? My house was built in 1857 and has lots of fancy exterior woodwork. I believe that’s about when the technology became available to feasibly produce trim on that scale. Could it be from that era?
