WTF is this?

Anyone know what this tool is? We sure don't. We're trying to help out a reader who was asking...

If you know the name of this thing or what it's for, drop it in the comments with some sort of documentation (like a link to a place selling it) and we'll send you a tool. This only goes for the first correct answer.

Indicator appears to be correct. We'd forgotten about this and had actually sent something out to one of the other guesses that seemed closest, but it does indeed look like it's an indicator.

Done and done.

i'm thinking those are all good thoughts but unfortunately aren't correct. i'm also think if we could get more pics from different angles it might open up more thought processes.

later jim

Hmmm...I could have sworn I submitted a comment (even found a link) that this looks like a watch face and crystal press.

Maybe my last comment is still lost in the ether.

My guess is that it has something to do with ammunition reloading.

Looks like an arbor press. An old one. Look at http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=arbor+press&oe=UTF-8&cid=15804197230167915350&ei=P3BXTI3OOJzKMLTPgYkE&sa=title&ved=0CBUQ8wIwATgA#p or google "arbor press".
