Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Anyone recognize this Duro work stand?

They make these type items to help in common tasks like Model T part rebuilding not obscure things but I can't connect this layout to anything T. There is a label and DURO can be made out but nothing else. Maybe early Ford tractors,whatever it is that head was made to hold something specific. It has casters so it was made to roll around. Any swag answers or an actual positive ID? Appreciate any help.picturepicturepicturepicture

Seems like those four slots in the plate, one straight and the other three somewhat crescent-shaped might be an indication that this fixture was designed to facilitate the mounting of a number of similar, but slightly different design, or manufacture of machines or devices.

Oh yeah,...I knew I could help,....(:^)......harold (:^)

I did a search for Duro.
I came up with this site:

http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/270/2118.pdf

It seams that they have a lot of woodworking machinery.
They have a letter on the site from 1949 saying they had been in business over 30 years by then, so the might have started in 1919.

The up and down fixture on top is to hold something round? Could it be a stand to slip under a old wall or post mounted drill? Bud.

Thanks Herb,I also found some of that stuff online. I always figured the tray was for the nuts and bolts taken out of whatever was being worked on. Then they would be right there handy to put back. That's as far as I got.

I looked on ebay too. There are a lot of items by Duro there, but not this one.
