I have seen one, much larger, used to cut clay sewer pipe. It looks like it
would be turned, so the wheels make a groove, like a glass cutter. The
contractor I watched merely tightened the chain, and the pipe popped in two.
I don't know of any clay pipe in sizes that this tool could handle, so it is
plausible that it would be used for glass tubing, such as is used for boiler
sight glasses, etc.
As I mentioned in a different post, the seller told me that he thought it
was a glass cutter, I finally found one just like it on this page, second
from the bottom:

#201 - pipe cutter. It might just be a chain wrench, but those little
wheels in the chain look like they're sharp-edged
#202 - brake or clutch re-liner ? Asbestos friction linings were
riveted to a steel frame. This tool is used to cut the heads off the
rivets so a new lining can be riveted on. It used to be a local
garage task, now we just swap the whole component.
#204 - typewriter
#205 - don't think this is for gas welding. UK bottles always use a
square shut-off valve spindle and the wrench for the pipe connections
is much bigger.
201. Muffler cutter
202. No idea.
203. No idea.
204. Typewriter. Soon to be a museum piece.
205. Go/NoGo gauge
206. magnetize/demagnetize block
