It's a torque wrench. But, I can't tell if it's in a fixture or storage mount.

Judging the scale from the pin and socket crimpers behind it, it must be the new undersized Branson reverse ratchiting Mars rocket door handle.

That's a bench mount for a digital torque wrench. The wrench can then be used to measure the torque applied from another tool.

It's a torque wrench calibrator/tester.

It looks like a torque wrench or torque indicator used to check, calibrate, or set up other (torque) wrenches; possibly even the hand devices on the table behind the device in question.
