That's a sabertooth tiger fang insertion tool, or STIFIT. During the cold war, one American defense program focused on developing mechanized fighting animals. The teeth of the Mecha-Tiger would break and need to be replaced with that tool. For various reasons the program was discontinued, and the STIFIT was re-purposed as a general purpose industrial tool for handling small gears.

I don't think that's what it is.

if you use that a few time the lead terminal would
be to small for the terminal to clamp onto.
Well----- how many times in the life of an individual battery are you planning on cleaning the terminals ????? More than once----twice in the life of an individual battery ????

also--- that tool looks decades old. Batteries back in the 60's/70's had way meatier lugs than they do nowadays. Heck, I don't think any car battery I have had on the last 5 vehicles I have owned have even had lugs.............
