Does anyone have experience with or information on this type of jack shaft clutch? How did the operator actuate this? What is this type of clutch called?
Thanks

I don't think they have a specific name, just a clutch pulley countershaft. Where the rod is between the two hangers, there should be a sliding rod there with a fork that fits into the slot on the cone. On the end of the sliding rod attaches a handle called a shipper rod which the operator moves the fork between the two clutches, either forward and reverse or hi and low speeds.

Here are photos of the small machine shop that I installed at the Wood County Museum blacksmith shop in Bowling Green, Ohio. The jack shaft above the lathe is a double clutch affair that allows the lathe to turn in either direction. The two pulleys are driven in opposite directions by twisting one belt. The tapered wooden lever hanging between the clutches engages either clutch to drive the lathe. The electric drive motor is above the lathe on the tail stock end.
