    I'm not sure if the roll of material or the gas bottle to the left is related to the machine.

        I can certainly see the similarity to the vibratory bowl feeders in the video. It looks like the parts would come out the orange nozzle.

        Is the inverted T-shaped leg and what looks like a copper bar part of the machine? What does the copper bar do?

          Parts might have been spot welded after feeding to assembly.

            That thick "cable?" looks like it is connected to the copper bar. I think it may have
            "welder" in its description.

              the yellow handle I believe is the switch,but it does look like some form of spot welder to me also. Jim

                AS I Make Something says that is a parts feeder. What the part could be is anyone's guess.

                    If you do not know, you probably do not need one.

                    And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
                    You will find that it has discrete steps.

                        If you want to build a bead roller and this is cheap... grab it...
                        but yeah would not worry too much about it if you cantsee a use in it...

                          I think boslab has nailed it. The combination of a small parts feeder and stud welder makes perfect sense. It's nothing like the modern ones, so it may be the first one made. The video I saw it in was taken in a tree climber's shop. I have no idea how he came by it or what he does with it.

                          Thanks!!

                            Stud welder for duct liner.
                            the black roll on the left is insulation for duct work. The yellow handle moves in and out to align the studs and has a triger.

                              Yeah, those sharp nail like studs that hold the insulation in place.
