I have a "what'sit"
No makers marks and I do not have the adjustable (beam?) that goes in the diamond shaped hole...

I think I know, at least I have an idea, but looking for other smart people to confirm...

Honestly,
I am thinking of trying to forge cutters, to try to make it as "period" as possible.
Planning to post it over on FB-Unplugged Woodworkers 1. to get more information and 2. see if there is any interest...

You see I bought "3 Antique Unusual Iron Tools" to obtain a LS Starrett 174 tap wrench.
My intention was to scrap the other parts, but when I got this out of the package, I decided it needed "rescuing"

Haven't seen a tap wrench like that. I had to have a slightly larger one.
