    Either a shaper or a metal planer by the looks of what's there.

    It may be from a metal planer or wood planer, is full of wood dust, but is only has 80-100 mm sideways movement and no clapper box, it has some cam set up, it can go freely down instead of backwards and with the handle the cutter moves down, like engaging the cut, strange.

    Ok now I'm pretty sure it's from a copy lathe . Used for wood to make the same cut on wood .
