I've seen this kicking around the place many times in my life, just ran across it yesterday while attempting to straighten the place up a bit.

I have no idea what it's for, but in checking it out closer I found out it has a few patent mentions, earliest is 1880! The only thing I know about it is that is was my grandpa's (born in 1900)...

It is a saw set. For setting the teeth on handsaws.
Bring this up in the neanderthal forum and watch the answers come falling out.
