Help identify this tool? Lathe turning woodworking tool? Answered

Can someone please help me identify this tool? I believe it is a tool for wood turning possibly.
Wheel is approx 3-1/8" diameter. Length of tool is approx 17" from butt to wheel shaft. Wheel has small, flat cut teeth. Parts appear to be steel and brass. There are no mfgr stamps or hallmarks.

It looks like a tool for putting the bead in a screen window to hold the screen in place.

It has no easy guide to serrate paper but a leather embosser like horse saddle.

I think that one is to mark the stitch line but yes it is for marking leather without cutting it.

Its not a lathe tool.

Its for making serrations in paper to make tearing off along a line easier.
