I swear, some days my attention span is nothing, other days I can watch stuff like this and look for more.

That is a WW2 "war finish" government contract ratchet. I'm surprised it is marked Proto, most were marked Plomb Tool.
I looked it up, they didn't start using the "Proto" brand name until 1948, so my guess is that it's either a parts ratchet or one that was made after the war out of remaining parts to fulfill a contact.
