I never seen another. I bought this years ago when Scrantion lace closed down.
It takes a BIG tractor to move it around.

Although it might have been used as an anvil table for many years I'm betting it was originally the base for a high pressure hydraulic press. We had a couple presses in the shop that had bases nearly identical in size and shape. Both were used to bond rubber parts to steel super structure. THe ears on the corners look like they could have been the mounts for vertical components

Wow as neat as that would be to have, I wouldn't want a tool that weighs more than my shop.

If I had a big enough shop.... I'd love to have that beast. Today...with my makeshift shop, its out of the question. That said... If someone offered it to me for free, I'd take it and store it for my future workshop. Might never get to getting my real workshop, but hey... We all need to have something to dream for.

It's big enough and heavy enough that I can let it set out side of my shop without
worrying that someone might walk off with it and the rain does not hurt it a bit...
