    see here:

    For exact camera positioning for close-up, macrophotography and copying. Two positioning scales are perpendicular to one another. Setting range each 95 mm (3.7 in.). Prismatic precision guideways with micro adjustment across helical gear rack-and-pinion assemblies complete with lock screws and dials calibrated in millimeters. (Kaiser)

    However your version has mounted in addition:
    -) a rectangular gusset with 1/4" screw at base mount
    -) a rectangular gusset fitting both racks

    yielding a further 90° off-set in both cases.

    It appears to be for precisely positioning a camera for macro-photography. In the heyday of TLRs, a similar devise was used in macro-photography to reposition the taking lens in the same position as the focusing lens.
