Someone on PM suggested that this is for a Pratt and Whitney lathe.
Look on the floor under the lathe.

We also need a picture of the bottom of the item, with a scale in the picture.

It looks like a device that I saw used once to straighten out a bent front tube on a motorcycle. It was mounted on a lathe like bed but there were other pieces to mount the tube at the ends.
