TRYING TO FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHAT THIS DOES -ANY IDEAS?
It is just over 4 inches long so not overly robust?

Is it a form of balance calipers? Are there holes for the balance pivots in the prongs on the end?

I thought it looked like it might be but I have never seen one this style.

Michael, I was trying to adjust the pics for a better look and seem to have screwed it up on my computer, I'll try to get the pic back up.

Hi,
I don't know what I did with the original picture but I found a pic of another. It is indeed a balance truing caliper. You were right Michael.
