Good for sheet metal work, enlarging a hole.
Good for putting a taper on aluminum block. Aluminum is a grabby medium
for machines.. The slow cutting of the brace would allow it to be
cleaned better, and it would prevent galling to some degree... with the

Two counters. Set up so as to provide two

Running an analysis...
My first guess is that 3143 was a production line quality control counter
mounted to a small run or slow production line.
Both buttons have red residue on them. The angle of the buttons suggest
Counter A counts all the objects on the line up to that point.
Counter B counts remaining objects that pass by.
Between the two, someone or some contrivance pushes or drops damaged,
underweight overweight or otherwise out of spec items off the conveyor.
The difference between the two counters gives a quality control tally.
A counter that goes up to 999,999 and some poor sod with red paint on his hands
had to push the buttons.
