reminds me of a saw used to cut molding/casing... i could be way wrong. I Certainly agree with Robert.

I agree with Kohnke - its a horizontal milling machine of some sort. It would appear the chuck and other parts are missing.

Probably a BECKER - they had long saddles

Yep - one of the photos can be made out to say "HYDE" for Hyde Park, MA where Becker Milling Machines were made. This vertical is from about 1900.

John the cutter goes on an arbor that is powered from the side of the machine and the other end goes into the holder on the outside. Yes horizontal milling machine without a motor but a pulley for a flat belt. Scott
