    My grandmother bought this and we are unsure what it is. "GENERAL NO. *10 MADE IN U.S.A" is imprinted on the top of it.

      My best guess would be a wallpaper stripper with a seam roller to trim wallpaper.

      Wood plane iron sharpener fixture.

      not entirely sure but I've seen similar devices used with a sharpening wheel, for sharpening chisels, plane blades and other similar things. This allows the item being sharpened to be held at the proper angle steadily as it sharpens.

      Looks to be a merit scraper......

      Good solve slackjack, Meowman, and TallCakes, who sealed the deal. I was not even close. Good to learn a new tool.

      Thank you TallCakes for solving our mystery! I also appreciate everyone else's responses too.
