I know your probably kidding, but I wouldn’t throw it out. Put it on ebay! I believe they’re used quite a bit for hobby cnc work, list it like that maybe. It’s a fancy time delay relay. We use them all the time on compressors in HVAC industry. We use them to keep the controls contractors from turning our compressors off and on, off and on in short periods of time, beating them to death. We set them to allow for a 5 minute delay before the compressor is allowed to come back on. Yours doesn’t appear to be the exact thing, but close. I’m sure the knob is the setting for the delay time. They’re used on milling machines for coolant pumps or like the other guy says, for dust and chip collectors. With maybe another relay, one could rig the CNC controller to turn it on or off based on the cycle or a g code. There’s some guy out there saying “I gotta have one of those!” Might fund your wireless remote maybe.
Just a thought. It does look confusing to me too, of course I have a mental block when it comes to electrical things. All I know is you don’t spit on an electric fence. I know that by experience sad to say.
