Do you recognize this tool?

This mystery tool has three wooden rollers. The top one turns with the crank and is also on a concentric hub that makes it wobble back and forth. “THE BOSS” is stenciled on the top. A label on the front reads “F. ZIMERMAN – PAMELA N.Y.” On the back is a label that reads “PATENT APPLIED FOR.” Across the top is a wood bar with a threaded wing nut for tensioning the rollers.
