Unique, perhaps, but I don't think I'd call a tool with a ratchet
"primitive".

Looks like a ratchet wrench with an extra handle to keep from
stripping the nut, perhaps a lug nut?

I believe it is a tool use to make adjustment You place the tool on the
nut with the vertical handle and made the adjustment with the ratchet
handle.

I have seen it before but can remember what the machine was it was used on .

I'd like to seen the end of the tool it's sitting on.
It might be a drill rather than a wrench.

It's a variation to the Pratt's handle ratchet tool, more specific the auger handle. Several variations for its use.

Looks like a ratchet brace of some sort - likely for use with an
auger bit.

I wondered if it was a specialty item - but Sonny's link doesn't
seem to suggest that :
