Almost like a sewing machine. Is it a wire stitcher? I have never seen one.

Looks like a press stud machine for doing long seams or joints.  Maybe used in the saddle/leather industry?

Possibly to house the press stud button and feed them into the machine.

A bit like this one.

As good a guess as any. Don't think a sewing machine as there is no pick-up on the bottom for the lock thread feed.

Could it be a belt hole puncher? with a stepping action?

 

Nah, still think it's some sort of press stud machine. See the flap?, to the container which holds one half. They slide down the shoot and into position ready to be pressed.  

My guess anyway.

I think that is likely but why all the complicated apparatus to feed one half when the mating section has to be placed by hand. What about eyelets of the style that just fold over on the back without a secondary plate. I seem to remember them looking like overgrown split rivets used on brake linings.

Except I think the Eye has its own hopper and stepping mechanism (I think!)
