Looks like it could almost be a drawplate for making wire. By the looks of the holes, though, I am inclined against that. Maybe they were in a better condition before? It would produce a double half round wire, and the holes might be of slightly decreasing size. From the angle of the photo, however, it is difficult to tell.

it sure looks like a screw/bolt threading tool to me. Peter Ross uses one very similar making the hardware for Roy Underhill's Gate a few seasons ago. Episode "Field gate Hinges" right around 22 min into the program Peter has this tool in use. hope this helps
