    I’ve asked the machinists even though I think this was for some kitchen or home-shop use. Many machinists despise aluminum when used in tools; they call it “shiny wood.”

    I don't suppose that could to be writing on the side, shown on the second photo.

    I believe it is for deburring sheet metal edges.

    Some kind of window latch or door latch? As Greg said, it reminds me of an old ice box handle.

    Glazier’s muntin scraper, latest guess from machinist forum. I like that answer. If that’s what it is, it may have come with a set of variously-shaped, changeable blades.
