Just picked this up off Craigslist for $30. Does anyone know what it is used for?

  That's really interesting! I'm suprised "Sew_Classic" hasn't commented... maybe she'd know?
  I don't see any thread guides. I wonder if it just punches holes, like in
leather belts? I'm really just guessing!  It definitely needs to soaked with WD-40... it looks kind of rusty. I'd send a picture on-line to the Singer Company for info

Is there any chance of more detailed picks?

It was kind of a trick question because I already knew the answer. I just wanted to see if anyone else could identify it. It's a rare Singer 114w100 industrial chainstitch embroidery machine. It's a predecessor of the later 114w103. The handle beneath the machine controls the feed, enabling the fabric to move in any direction, unlike conventional machines where the feed dogs move the fabric in only one direction. Here's a Youtube video of someone using this type of machine:
