I'd go with tool grinder. Looks like that thing on top is a pump for wet lapping. Would need a pan to catch runoff and recycle it.

Looks to me like it is a plainer blade sharpener. But I could stand to be corrected.

my guess is a circle saw gummer/sharpner?

in the first pic, it would have been mounted up 90deg
so the cast iron container held water and just dripped onto the blade.
