Since Jon Beeman did such a good job with my last what is it tool, let's try another What The Heck Is It Tool.

Whatever its used for;looks like its been altered from its original purpose.

Not going with the Press thing this time.

Hi Brian
I've seen a item very similar to what you have pictured in a drafting set. The only thing was that the item in the drafting set came to a sharp point. I can't remember what it was called,maybe someone else can.I have one laying around the house somewhere. It may have been used to hold a thin lead, not sure.

The one in the drafting set was an ink pen. The gap could be varied to make different line widths.

Brian, I think you've stumped the panel this time.

Frank,
I guess so. Where is Wynter S. the tool guru?

This could be used as a pallet warmer.

I'll bet it could Julian but I'd prefer the kind with the plate that goes under the jewels.

Pallet fork holder? Just a guess-I'm not a watch person. Mike C.

Hi Michael,
That was Julian's answer. Yes it could well be that. How about a roller jewel holder?
Next?

Brian C. A pallet warmer and a pallet fork holder are the same? I'm not a watch person, so I'm not sure what you mean by Julian giving the same answer. Mike C.

Hi Michael,
Yes a pallet warmer and a pallet holder would be the same thing. A pallet warmer would be the correct term to use, it holds the pallet when replacing or adjusting the pallet jewels.
