Its in good working condition turns nicely. It does have old oil on surface and there is a crack that looks like was welded at one time and chunk broken off on the front lower left leg. Its still a solid tool sits flat. It was mounted solid on an old board before I took all the screws out to clean it some. Handle works fine lose some from use, wood good just missing the band ring in front welded to back side.
Looks complete to me along with the rope tool. It must have been red at one time I see a little red on the rope maker and the tool also.
