Is there a place to load a nail and are there marks as if it has been struck on top? It looks like a nailer for hardwood floors.

I tend to agree with RAH, it looks to be some kind of a nailer…

Did some Googling thru their patents list and the closest thing I found was a 1960’s flooring nailer that looks exactly like this. Then I lost the pic, so I can’t post it!

The first picture that you posted made me think of a flooring nailer. Then some of the other pictures made me question my guess.

Maybe I was right after all.
