the owner said it was a table
« on: October 11, 2019, 03:28:34 PM »
PO said this was a vulcanising table, tho he used it for a birdbath.

I looked up a few, but I am not convinced. 

measures 27 inches in diameter and 26 inches tall.

 It was prolly smooth and shiny before he put it in the yard.

Anyone seen anything remotely similar?

All you need is to find something 27" in diameter that needs to be squeezed very flat.

OK.  I've done my part.  Who is next?

Tortillas, and you put the coals for cooking them up top like the Dutch Oven we used in Boy Scouts? Hmmm... now I'm hungry.

Seems like you need heat to vulcanize. Don't see a source. I'd guess it's a glue press of some kind. WAG

I have seen those before. It really is a vulcanizing press for pump diaphrams.

Just how many walnuts could you crack at once. Very efficient.
