Looks like a jig for a sharpener where the tool is clamped in the plate and it slides back and forth on the guide rods.

My Tormek has a similar attachment.

Thanks. Would this somehow be attached to the belt sander (which I assume could sharpen tools), or is it really designed for something else?

I don’t know for sure, Harley. It could mount to a bench grinder too. I’ve never seen that exact item.

That’s the sort of thing Garrett Wade used
to sell back in the 90s when they sold INCA
machines nationwide. At the time it was a
dominant supplier of fine woodworking tools
in the states.

Sweet! That’s an exact match!

Now I just need to figure out how to use it, and whether I can fit it to my belt/disc sander or gift it to my brother in law who claimed the actual grinder

Loren always comes through with even the most obscure finds. I don’t know how he does it, but he’s a champ.
