I had a Bear portable front alignment machine that had two attachments to set toe in that looked something like that!

I don't know the answer to that question, but I'll give another couple of clues.

Here's another pic with 2 (optional) rulers.

Pretty sure it is a layout and measuring tool. I can't remember the trade name, but it is used for scribing lines, can be used as a depth gauge or a square. And some other things if you can figure out how to use the freakin thing. The "carpenters multi-tool " is actually pretty accurate lol. My uncle collects antique wood working tools and has one that is similar but his was made in like 1890-1900 range? Not sure on age but it is pretty close to turn of the century.

That is a fixed face marking gauge or duplicating tool. Used by wood workers or cabinet makers. Possibly made by Stanley or Wilson.

Well ... I'm not sure who to award the "win" to.
You were all on the right track.
CarolinaCustoms was the most explicit in his identification, I think.

It's a Stanley No.1 "Odd Job Layout Tool'

Quote:
Stanley #1 Odd Jobs
Stanley produced this all-in-one layout tool between 1888 and the 1930s. It looks like a directional arrow from a street sign and was originally advertised as 10 tools in one (including level, depth gauge, try square, and compass). There are a few companies that make replicas, but originals can still be found on eBay for a couple hundred dollars apiece.

There were 2 posters that were for the most part correct before me. I just happened to have seen one before and had a little more explanation to its uses, but a "carpenters multitool" and a "type of square were also correct. So give one of them the win because it was just a stroke of luck for me.
