It's an iron ball dispenser!

Iron ball dispenser (facepalm) why didn't i think of that.

Something medical/diagnostic is guessed from what else the manufacturer do, but all I could think of was 'release a ball when you hear a beep' but that's an awkward way of acknowledgement, and dangerously fiddly with all the small balls all over.
I'm keeping it for splash-photography or simply magnetize the small balls.

What is the size of the balls that it dispenses?

About 2 millimeters, The thing fits in your hand.

Are they fishing line sinkers? Might be lead?

They are steel, there is a warning label telling you to keep it away from magnets. It's made by Diagnostiga Stago.
