I would say this is a saw set.
Perhaps never patented, but much like these.

Back in the day, saws were set and resharpened. Can you believe that?

Yep- used to adjust the "set" or bend of a saw tooth out from the centerline. Teeth will alternate, left right left right. Used to watch Granddad- when he had finished sharpening and setting a handsaw, he could turn it teeth up, tilt it at a 45 degree angle, lay a sewing needle in the groove of the teeth, and it would slide from one end of the saw to the other.

My collection of powerless tools include many saws, saw sets and a wonderful saw vise for sharpening. Decent files are always a problem, I have a few dedicated saw files, handy for riding a gullet with the smooth side.

I have never seen a set quite like this one until I began a little research on Bobski's pic.

I thought the method of obtaining the compound leverage on the set/anvil was quite interesting.

I would expect something a bit more refined for the adjustment screw, but I am sure it worked just find.

This one would require some wrist-twist to get the tooth set, where most of the ones I use have handle leverage creating the set.

Nice tool. Love the mid 1800' to late 1800 tools.
