Any idea on what is this?

Hi all!!
There is an extrange "maybe woodworking" tool on a local auction site, here in Argentina. It looks like some kind "manual stationary planner".. but I don't really have any idea of what's that, and how to use it. Maybe it's not woodworking related at all. Could you help me with any information about this? Here it's the link, I know it's in spanish, but would you look at the pictures only?

Just wanted to have an idea of what is it, and if it's useful at all.
Thanks in advance to all! Nautilus

I had my daughter, who speaks Spanish, attempted to translate the page. Her guess is the person listing the item thinks it's a wood planer but my guess is that it is a tool used to thickness leather for making belts (harness making and drive belts). See:

Hi all!
Thanks so much for all the responses!! And thanks Nova for the great link.
I think that the evidence point to the leather working tool, I'll find more info with that baseline.
Sorry for the spanish post, and cheers to all! Nautilus

If it's a woodworking tool, then it looks like some kind of bending jig.
I wonder if it might not be a leatherworking 'vise' - for holding a piece of leather firmly while it's being tooled?
Just my wild guesses...

It looks like a leather cutter that a book binder would use.
