My wife found this in an antique store amongst the hardware and automotive junk. In 5 years I've been unable to find out what it is. Anyone have a clue?

It just might be a tool for perforating belting to fit joiners having a series of teeth which are then bent over to hold them in place. There was usually a pin to make the connection. Wabco may be for something like Washington Belting Company.

Just me pondering from afar.

From the last photo, I'd say it is a hammer negralator.

Wabco could be Wagner or Westinghouse Air Brake Company. Jim

I have no idea, but in poking around the internet in my search, I found that there are a hell of a lot of different companies named WABCO.
