What the heck is it?

Found this gadget at a thrift shop and have no clue what it is, but is sure looks fun! Any help identifying it would be appreciated! One lady at that register thought it might be a paint mixer!
Here are the blades:

It has a lightweight orange handle and it turns like a mixer would.

It's attached (I assume previous owner did this) to a wooden block with a formica top.

The words on that back side read "Anjali Mild Steel" And you know as much as I do!

I have been looking and looking trying to figure out what it is! Why did you do this to me!!!! LOL

LOL, I'm sorry! The lady standing behind me in line asked me what it is. I said I have NO idea! Then why are you buying it, she said! Because it's different!

Um a pre-electric juicer?

A dough kneader?

A torture device?

I can't think anymore, my brain hurts.

I don't know, exactly, but I really think from the blades that it is some kind of fruit reamer. Very cool, whatever it is!

I was thinking about a juicer of some type because a mixer/chopper would be going in the wrong direction.
