I thought that too, but i would think the 'tongues' would line up in the tool so you could cut across it.

I believe it is an old barber tool--perhaps to hold a straight razor while stropping it.

Looks like, it's more of a tool for wood working or grinding...
Says "Peerless Tool & Machine Company, Inc. was founded in 1942 to meet the growing machining needs of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts."
Might you live there or near by?

Perhaps--nothing in the pic or description to really indicate size or scale.

Peerless used to be both a common word and fairly common proper noun. I knew 2 men who were named Peerless-both long in the grave now. Quite a few companys picked up the name over the decades as well.

Yes i found that list, but there were no pictures, and most of their stuff seemed to be for metal working ( this would be for wood )

MJ: its about the size of a hairbrush or handled comb. Its about 1/2 thick and splits down the middle lengthwise in order to clamp onto something that is about 1/8 or so wide.. The springed rod just goes up into the body, I am assuming to keep whatever is clamped steady.

I first thought it was a guide to create dovetails in cabinet drawers ( or a curling iron... ) but i cant see why the 'slots' in the tool would be offset if that was what it was for.

No... pushes material out after whatever is cut.
Likely is cutting tool... Not a dovetail tool. Not sure what cutting....
Maybe is a tool for some company order, low quantity... Not made for public use. Try asking Peerless?
