Brought this home today. Obviously, it's a foot-powered flywheel, driving a round or narrow flat belt. It's heavy, well over 100 pounds. Well-made and operates smoothly, with the wheel spinning long after you take your foot away. You sort of swing your foot back and forth to make it go. What sort of machine might this be used on? A generic item? Can't quite make out the embossing, other than " ??OUT'S EXCELSIOR.' Thanks for looking.
