We all have that weird what's this thing do.
I thought I would make a thread to share the weirdo stuff.
Please feel free to post your weirdo/ what is it stuff.

Can anybody tell me the purpose of this set up?  (Bosch routers)
I had this back in the late 80's.
If no one knows/guesses I will post a picture of the business end.

You can't put a price on knowledge. 
When I disclose what it is,  everybody that didn't know will have won the gift of knowledge....
And I'll buy them a beer. (only 1 though,  low budget)

A Bosch idea so a woodworker would have to buy 2 routers.    Have no idea.

That could be,  the final result could be obtained using only one of them if you had to.
