Details of Miscellaneous
Ah, a sad tale. This is the old base of the mixing mechanism from the company that used to make all the shellac we use. The place has only been going for a hundred years or so, and now its to be demolished for (another) supermarket, how many do we need?
It may even be demolished for the car park of the supermarket as we're all too lazy to walk as well grumble grumble.
It used to have a wooden cask attached to the top which was rotated for 3 days in order to do the mixing. The cask is gone, but we screwed the old housing onto the underside just to keep it together for posterity.
Would make a good rustic table base.
