      It is an angle divider although I never saw one this big. Perhaps it was a training aid used in a classroom. They have many uses from surveying to shooting an azimuth to laying out construction plans on paper to simply bisecting an angle. I have a more modern design I use for cutting crown molding to a cathedral style ceiling where you encounter multiple angles to join.
