Every thread I chase returns to only one item, currently listed on eBay as a Roberts Company 3 bit fly cutter with pilot. The one on eBay has a solid rod in place of the drill bit, but that's trivial.

All indications are that it's designed to cut holes in metal.

The one in the photo may have a taper, allowing it to be inserted directly into a matching spindle.
