Default What is it?

Picked this up from a friend tonight. If I didn’t take it, it was going to go into a scrap dumpster. It looked too interesting to let that be it fate. It looks to be some sort of trimmer. The handle has a blade that can be adjusted for how far it sticks out be two screws. It has a pin that pulls out so the 90* fence part can be rotated. The handle with the blade can also pivot away from the base about 1/8”, so you can shave a bit off at a time, whatever it is designed to cut.

Also picked this up that was out by the side of the road with a free sign. It looks like DEWALT made a job site trailer with a radial arm saw mounted on it. Or it was custom made by the company named on the metal tag on the back. They went thru the trouble of putting a metal DEWALT nameplate on the back of the trailer though.

Anyone ever see one like it before? Click image for larger version

Your "Wotzit" looks like a trim bender for counter tops.

Can't help you with a name but Norm seems to be onto something...

At the rate you're going, you will need more acreage soon!
