Guess that wasn’t it!

It’s a handheld tool with a rolling wheel like this pic of yours that is used to apply metal leaf (usually gold) to a surface. Usually done with wood working or some metal working for decoration.

Back to Goog.....uh, the drawing board!

Hello, I'm new here, but I think I know what this is - it's a dressing tool for grinding wheels. Have one in my shop.

Welcome to DC featherblu!!

And that’s a great guess....you may have this one.

Jeeks had guessed it is used to flatten a grinding wheel....but I looked up a “dressing wheel” and what it does is basically sharpens or roughs up a grinding wheel. If this is it, then Jeeks was really close!
