    I'm afraid I don't meet your prerequisites.

    I will say it's pretty neat looking and would like to see more views.

    I have an identical unit. I use it to reset the teeth on bandsaw blades. Auto feeds and sets as you crank. Very handy.

    Without seeing a couple of other views of it I can’t be certain but it looks to me like a hand cranked band saw setter for the older type of wood working band saws without hardened teeth .
    If the guide below the vise jaws will go down far enough and the action is strong and the stroke of the feed pawl is long enough you could probably set the 1-1/4” wide blades that are commonly used on the small portable band saw mills with it.
    I have an older German made band saw setter but I can’t identify yours from the picture .
    Some of the saw makers sold these machines that they either made or had made for them by someone else.
    A forum search turned up these threads.
    Disston Saw
    With different types shown here
    The Saw Set Collector's Resouce - Bandsaw Type Saw Set
    The pictures don’t show clearly in this thread for me but may be Ok for some viewers.
    OT Mystery thing ?

    Regards,

    P.S. I see Chauky 50 posted while I was typing.

    P.S.
    There are a couple of some videos on Youtube showing band saw setters that look somewhat like yours.

    YouTube

    On some of these machines including the mine you can select for the feed pawl to operate on either of two cams .
    One cam sets the teeth in the regular alternate manner one left and one right while the other cam with 3 lobes allows for raker set teeth, One set left one set right and one raker tooth with no set.

    Seriously Digger, you spend a lot of time complaining here on this forum. Why don't you expend your energy and spare time on things that give you satisfaction and happiness? Life is too short to spend it unhappy.

    you assume that doesn't make him happy, I'd bet that it is quite satisfying for some to complain... not that I would know anything about that...

    I am old, at least, and recall seeing a similar machine at an antique engine show two or three decades ago. The owner had replaced the hand crank with a pulley and drove it from an antique gas engine. He had a big bandsaw blade being endlessly run through the motions of tooth setting. It was fun to watch for a few seconds. Next to it was a bandsaw blade filing machine that was fun to watch for a few seconds longer.
