It's an old shear, and I have no idea who the manufacturer was.
A loop gauge is a hinged bar on the side of the blade away from the table.
It can be set to specific widths for cutting board.   It's a great
convenience to have (when it is parallel to the blade) for jobs that require
cutting pieces of two different widths:  the table can be set for one width
and the gauge for the other.
