I think that no one here owns one of these...... well of course no one but me. But of course I think you should, that is if you knew what it was for or how it is used. So someone help the reader out and tell us about this tool and when you do be the first one with a correct answer and win 50 points.

Looks like an Accuscribe. Used to transfer the contours of a wall to the trim strip of countertops or built in furniture so they fit tight to the wall. Works better than a compass because the two feet riding the wall keep a constant offset.

You can also jam a mechanical pencil into a bearing or fender washer and get the same effect.

Me thinks it looks like something to be attached to a long board or steel stud for scribing REALLY long radii. Say more than other gismos attached to a yardstick. Or for sliding along an irrigular permanent surface to say, get the bottom kick plate of wooden steps to fit perfect at the bottom and against the last wooden step. I had to "rube" something like this when restoring Mom's back wooden steps against the brick patio surface. Yep, it worked, trimmed the last kickplate with a jigsaw. Couldn't judge what was there first, the wood or the brick patio.
