Looks to me like a type of press, like a steam iron.

Appears very similar in construction and operation to a hand/foot operated sheet metal shear based on the angle of the blade. It appears to clamp first and then cut. I guess a clue could be how wide it opens when fully raised. Shingle cutter/asbestos siding cutter might not be too far off the mark...?

Any chance of getting more photos from all angles? When you unscrew the handwheel to separate the front and back of the middle piece what is inside there?

I THINK THAT THE BROOM PRESS/ CUTTER IS LIKELY IT. YOU PRESS IT WITH THE BROOM IN THE VERTICLE POSITION TO SHAPE THE BROOM FOR STICHING TO HOLD SHAPE THEN RECLAMP TO CUT TO LEGNTH ? NOT POSITIVE BUT LOOKS POSSIBLE TO ME.

I've seen something like it before, but can't remember off hand what it was used for.

Would be nice to see more pictures of it though. . . might jog the memory.

I have no idea, but I would think that the trough or gutter at the bottom would catch or hold a liquid of some sort.
