Green Woodworking using hand tools and freshly felled timber.
Your wotsit is a saw swage. That particular design was patented by Spear & Jackson in 1916.
Might it be some type of rotary knife sharpener? It looks like it has clips that fit over a thin blade and a hand-cranked sharpening element (either that or it is a very large can opener...)!
Here is the patent if you would like to read it:http://www.carpentryarchive.org/files/GB108399A.pdf
For the toenails, when rather too long, methinks.
