Default What do I have here? Lathe tool?

Recently purchased a small lathe and this was in with the tooling. I'm a want-to-be machinist and have no idea what it is or if there is any value but I'm curious what it is and how it was used. It is about 14.5" long x 7.5" high. 1/4 square shaft out the one end. only marking seems to be VNM??T 0 11-259

Thanks in advance

If the hollow keyed shaft makes the slide move back and forth, then I would guess that it is a shaper attachment that could be used to cut internal keyways.

Or its a cross slide off of another lathe/machine that previous owner used or meant to use as some type of attachment. What kind of lathe did you get? Does this piece seem to match it? VNMT could be Van Norman Machine Tool, or just a casting#?

Maybe some sort of purpose-built milling vise for a lathe?

Thanks everyone had two confirmations from a machinist site identifying it as a slotter attachment for a Van Norman milling machine used for cutting internal key ways. Thanks again for the response.

If you decide to sell it, I have a Van Norman mill it will fit.

Looks like a Shaper attachment to me. . .

May or may Not go with the lathe you bought, but I'm guessing NOT unless your lathe has an extra drive unit on it to power that.

And if I'd read ALL the comments before replying I would have seen you already got your answer.
