    Looks like a control box was there.

    Ahhhh ok, so the control box was originally on that side and at some point in its life had it moved to the other side. I guess it was moved when the DRO was added? Cheers for that Eddy!

    That's not a boring head it's an adjustable fly cutter IMHO.
    A boring head is much more substantial.

    It's a Trappaning Head used to cut holes in thin material, small hole is drilled in material same size as the bottom spigot and machine set to slow speed.

    Nah that's not a Fly cutter or a boring bar it's some kind of knife like a tangential knife look at the blade it's sharp and angled like a stanley blade and blade doesn't clear the boss sticking down from main shaft. I reckon this boss goes into a hole on fixture of some kind and it's a knife for cutting something hard like leather.?

    Ah, when I mentioned the boring head I was referring to the tool in the first picture (in the right hand tub) which I knew was 100% a boring head......... only because it said so on the side! lol! :)

    I still thought the tool in the second picture was some sort of boring tool so thanks everyone for putting me straight.
