This piece of equipment was in with a lot of lapidary tools I bought. No idea what it’s for, possibly a bender of some kind? [Linked Image]

Purely a guess, but it looks like it might be a custom rolling mill, the size looks like it was for making bracelets

At first glance I thought it was one end of a machine because of the single gear, then I zoomed in a bit and it looks like the gear is turned by a worm gear off the motor.

OK I'm going with it turned a pump of some sort. Add another wheel with a belt ran through that thing and it could run a pump as well as few accessories.

Is that third wheel on the arm in line with the others?

That was a suggestion from the lapidary board, if so, there is something missing. The motor drives the gear, but nothing else moves

Agree. Looks like some kind of drum gets laid on those wheels and then the crank wheel turns it

Rock tumbler. Friend Dad (geologist) had one similar and he used a tire and 2 pieces of plywood to cover center hole. Filled 1/3 with sand and rocks to be polish and bolted covers on with all thread. He used 5.70 x 16 tires. Emerson is a elec motor company. His dad also had a diamond dust lapidarian wheel, rock cutting wheel Diamond dust, gold nuggets, silver, and mercury.
