This tool was purchased from eBay due to the odd "Bonneys" stamp, with the S at the end. Anyone with insight into this tool would be most helpful! Please register / sign in to comment on this Bonney"s" oddball!
The top fits into a brace.
There is a blade that slides in from the side, and is very sharp.
Notice the stamp. Bonneys PA
And finally on the business end, it appears that the blade seats at different depths depending on the diameter of the workpiece.
