Knowing many of you have well equipped workshops I wonder if any could hazard a guess of this pulley driven tool I took off the curb for its motor? It has a reciprocating jig below but no evidence that a blade rose to the upper arm. There is no random sawdust but the work table has a moveable angle adjustment. Coud it be a riveting or stitching tool and better, would anybody on the east coast want me to donate it to the NJ meet or just scrap it for recycle. Thanks!

It’s an old scroll saw. The blade secured into a spring loaded plunger in the top part of the arm.

and, maybe, a 1959 Cadillac. I don't know how you could move this query to the "Other Collectibles" section where it belongs and still have access to it as a non-member, but anyway you want to be checking in with VintageMachinery, where you can get manuals, schematics, the works.
