Stanley No. 210 Mitre Cutter
The two fixed blades cut left or right 45 degree miters. A metal plate on the wood base reads "The Stanley Works, New Britain, CONN, USA". Cast on the back of the handle is"MADE IN USA, No. 210". While Stanley made these machines around the 1930's, this is a much older design, patented in 1858, by Stephen Hall, of Williamsport, PA. Hall's mitre cutter is advertised in the 1867 catalog of A.J. Wilkinson.
The blades are sharp and the iron is fine. The wood base shows much use and has the usual paint drips. Good working order.
