    This bell shaped press is on a guide but does not turn when pressed down all the way. It’s about 6 inches tall.

    Hello, JBG. Does either of these photos show the whole thing? Is it spring loaded? Circumference around the middle? There's no such thing as too much information. :)

    I would love to see more pictures (entire piece, bottom, another shot or three of the inside bits).

    Unfortunately I don’t have the item in my possession. The only thing I know is about six inches tall

    Those sharp-edged holes look like the holes in a grater - for cheese, cabbage, garlic, etc. And the swirl pattern they are placed in certainly imply that the piece should rotate.

    Here’s another. It does rotate but when it grabs the pegs at the bottom it doesn’t turn anymore.

    Imagine the pegs are to hold whatever it is you are grating.
