Years ago, I used a similar tool to round up the throws on my REO 2 cylinder crankshaft. The throws are off set where a conventional crankshaft grinder can not do the job.

Mine looks like the one Steve Tomaso has, only mine has a longer handle. They can work well, and some can even do a crankshaft in the car in a pinch. You do have to be very careful to not leave any sharp edges to your cuts. If the cutters are properly sharpened, that is not too difficult. Any sort of a sharp edge will lead to cracks and broken crankshafts.
