Default Vancouver Washington

Any Stakers in Vancouver have time to look at a piece of machinery. A friend sent me a picture of "something" at the edge of the parking lot at the Webber Office Building, 400 Columbia St. He only took the one picture. Not sure what it is, maybe someone can ID it.

Not an alligator shear as in here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQLTZiLedhw
That has or had a slide that move horizontally to what must have been an anvil or perhaps a rivet buck on the right side or perhaps a punch.

I think tdmidget is on the right track. The upper flat part looks to be a bed or slide.

I'm sorry for being so slow getting back to you. I don't get over to that part of town very often. I'll try to get over there and look at that machine for you. Weber machine was a shaft driven machine shop that operated Into the '70's or '80's. I think. I'll see what I can find about the shop and that machine for you.

I do live in Vancouver, but rarely go downtown. Due to health problems I stick close to home and nearby health providers. I have a van full of engines I bought about a month ago that I have been unable to unload. I have a engine out in my shop that I need to get a Salsbury clutch off of, but have not been able to do so yet.
