Dear Bobblehead Einstein,

Thanks so much for your input-I didn't have the slightest idea of what it was-

I'd like to get it in the hands of someone who could use it(if it's still a useable tool.

I think it is a device to hold a small item for presentation on a larger machine with four points of contact.  Non electric.
It could be a watch makers or jewelers tool.
