The magic of tummy rubbing......
That's it. My SO and i aquired this when my brother bought a vacant 10 acres. It is a early 1940 sugar cane press that was made to make syrup and liquor "squeezins" It is heavy! We had to have a box truck crane lift it and it almost snapped the arm of the lift!
Good Job Buck. Let's see what you have up your paw.

Who are these guys?






I thought they'd both show up the same size. Sorry. No significance to size (ie, size doesn't matter).

The top guy looks a bit like Nostradamus, but...

I'm assuming there is some commonality - field of interest/work, family heritage, whatever - otherwise you wouldn't have posted 2 images.

Your assumption is correct.

The bottom guy looks like a portrait of Rembrandt as an older man so it's possible that the picture at the top is also a painter and he looks familiar not that I got the bottom one correct, too, but the brain cells are not firing very well this morning.

It just came to me---is the top picture "Galileo" and they both got into trouble with religious authorities?

Galileo...no.

There is a religious connection, though.

Keep guessing.
