This one’s a baf­fling brass beauty

This week’s un­dated mys­tery gad­get comes from Paul Mineur of North Ho­bart. The item con­sists of three ad­justable screws, one loaded with a spring, threaded through a metal bracket.

It is one of the most trusted tools of its trade, needed for solv­ing an in­evitable prob­lem that comes with use.

How­eve, be warned am­a­teurs: you may cause more harm than good if you try and use it un­su­per­vised.

Older mod­els could be fash­ioned from cork, felt, and/or thread spools, but are now made from more sturdy ma­te­ri­als such as brass or ti­ta­nium.

It may look fa­mil­iar, but can you tell what this is specif­i­cally used for?
