That is known as a jig or fixture.

Most blacksmiths make at least some and what they do/ how they work is usually lost information to future generations. 

"Some" are universal enough that use can be determined but most are not.

My non-scientific guess with no measurements and only one picture (though the pink coffee cup in the background gives some scale) is the moving jaw of a vise, more likely a machinists then woodworkers.
