Something to do with pressing bushes/jewels in (no idea really) but left to right positioning adjustment and micro height adjustment so a pretty precision instrument

It will be interesting to know what it is.

Hoping Noah will chime in. The centre spindle is angled so some sort of reaming tool? To ream at specific angles? What would that be used for....?

I think John is correct, a jewel press. Googled "Favorite Jewel", the brand name and it has a jewel icon. The one's I saw, the rod was vertical though.

I'm thinking it has an angled lip to raise the rim of a chaton fixture for the spring if it's damaged.?

Yes Guy it's definitely different than the ones that came up on the google search. Looking at it closer, I believe the rod is vertical. The angle of the picture make it look like it's angled.

Have a different picture here. You can see the strange spindle whatchamacallit...


Anyway hopefully someone will shed some light on it.

That looks like more of a tool that would be found in a factory setting, not in a repair setting.
Perhaps it will help if you can describe any moving parts and how they are actuated, and give a close up of the punch's business end if it came with the tool.

I wonder if there is another part to this ? say for instance this was for working on the main plate or what ever why would you have the fine positioning from left to right when you could just move the part being worked on left to right by hand but if the part was in some sort of holder fixed to that main boss then you would need the fine left to right movement ?
