Hello All, specially the engine builders,

Sometime ago I found a tool, someone told me it was to rebuild Connecting rod. There are no cutters and I can't find out how to use it. Maybe someone recognise the tool and can guide me in the way it should be used.
Thanks

yes it is a connecting rod boring fixture ...a boring bit is set in 1 cross hole and a radius . spot facing bit is set in the other cross hole in the bar with the crank handle ...the 2 cone shaped parts on the lone slotted portion adjust the center distance (length) and the v-block and flat anvil adjust the big end to center the bore ...
old tools are very cool ...good find ...always an optimist ...gene french
