It is a hollow auger made for cutting round tenons on the end of stock. Usually a spoke pointer is used to "pencil sharpen" the end of the stock so the hollow auger will accept it. The tool was commonly used by wheelwrights to produce spokes but can also be used to make chair spindles. The round part with holes allows for different diameter tenons to be cut. The cutting blade is on the bottom and is presented to the workpiece at a very shallow angle to allow for cutting the end grain.

I think that it is upside down in the picture. That shaft goes in a receiver.
One would need to see the other sides to have a shot at a better idea of it's purpose

Pfft, this is an easy one, anyone can tell by the 3-finger slots that it's the 200 watt plasma rifle trigger assembly used exclusively by the aliens that invaded Brazil last week.



Thought this was supposed to be challenging...:yes2:

Hey, Landis; welcome!
That's an ancient thread (and the item was previously identified), but good on ya for doing the deep digging through the archives...something I haven't done ...yet. :)

I've seen a couple at least for sale on ebay. You might have to sharpen them but I would think they are still functional.
