Mystery Tool

This came from a yard sale at an old farm.  I've no idea as to this tool's purpose.

Nice site you have, thanks a lot!
The tool is a "zaagzetter" in Dutch, don't know what that's called in Englis, but it's for bending the teeth of woodsaws so the saw blade has got som clearance in the cut the teeth make.
Below is a link to another one.

Best Regards from Holland

Many thanks for visiting and for your information! In English, this would be a "saw set." I can see now how it would be used. Interestingly, every North American-made tool of this nature I've seen is of very different design.
