Adjustable stops for repeat cuts to exact length.  There is 
supposed to be an "L" shaped rod in the bracket, that is
held in place by that top knurled screw.

Also can be used, swapped end for end, to cut crown moulding.

Google "Langdon Acme Miter Box Instruction" and you will find
an owners manual.

Arguably one of the best ever made.

Mine is very accurate.

Yeah, the parts often get lost over the years. When I found a Stanley 358 with all original parts, I jumped on it. Trimmed out my entire house with it.

Thanks for the info!

I bought this years ago. I think off of Woodnet. I don't know why I didn't start using it much until now. It's dead square in both dimensions -- something my table saw rarely is.  Laugh And it's easy to use.
