It is a spot welder. It looks just like all the ones I've seen.
It works as you'd expect. Current flows and makes the junction
hot enough to melt. That is how all such things as connecting
filaments to attaching plates to leads has been done since
the begining. It is standard machine shop equipment.
Although, a side subject, I like Jay, consider tube manufacture
relavent to some of my computing equipment.
