Hello, Skip. I am going to guess at Rabbet Saw, or, Stair Builder's Saw. Is the depth of cut adjustable? Regards, Lou

looks like maybe a stair stringer saw (as mentioned)...   
here's a fancier one about half-way down the page

It's really tiny, right?  and the smaller part is a blade protecter/cover, right?
Too small for cutting stairs.
Maybe frets for stringed instruments?
