Looks like something wireless
receiver/broadcaster?

That's a tube tester. Judging from the sockets I'd say it's 1940ish vintage.

Looks like an aerial box for an old radio receiver.

Those 3 blocks (rear) that have dial on the front are variable capacitors, really the only thing that needs something like that is old radio equipment.
>finding one for your diy AM aerial is hard and expensive as fuck.

The lettering is off on the front, so I'd say it's DIY.

Where did you get it op?

>>52452620
it's too small

i would bet on part of an old air brake system from train

>>52452656

Seems that way. But the labeling is confusing me a bit.
