After two weeks, a two-person consensus was formed on the Brumbaugh’s tool.
Chris Epping of Funk, Nebraska was the first to guess that the tool is a Frankenstein of sorts and is actually two separate tools.
“The tool ... is a Sharples Cream separator. It looks like it may have been stripped of parts to be used as a base to mount a grinder.”
Thanks also to the Mickelsons, who guessed it was a split tool.
