Mystery Machine

Oldland Mill Trust is trying to find out what the hand driven machine shown in the photographs below was used for. It is thought to be a piece of farm machinery as it was found in an old barn in Burgess Hill when it was being cleaned out. There is a cylinder with cutting edges on it that rotates when the large wheel is turned so the machine may be a cutter of some sort.

We are interested to know :-

          What sort of machine is it.

          What product was it used for.

          Approximate idea of age.

          Whether this is a commercial or domestic piece of equipment.

          Any other information that might be relevant.


Any information, however small would be very helpful. Thank you.
