Default GTCU #1954

Here's GTCU #1954. Of course, the first visual clue won't necessarily be very helpful by itself. Nevertheless, it is a working part of the device as a whole. And yes, it is definitely smaller than a bread box. Good luck.

Side cutting rotary milling bit or rasp,
or some similar thing like an abrasive
cover on a radiused backing as useful
for shaping inside curves ?

Post or rod with a gripping surface, familiar
to me as drum kit hardware, but might be
used anywhere that clamp-on devices, such
as cowbells, need something to grip onto.

Knapping roller as in textile knapping machine ?

Lint remover for all your lint-attracting knappy
textiles ... clothing, upholtery, etc. ? Or similar
purposed roller in a vacuum cleaner ?

Or in a floor polisher, wax stripper, or refinisher ?

The mystery object doesn't cut or machine anything.

Isn't any kind of attachment, hook, or fastener.

Not something you use for cutting, shaping, or anything like that. This particular part is made of metal but it is not for guiding something else, at least not the way you are probably thinking.

Not any kind of medical instrument either.

Has nothing to do with cleaning, making, or otherwise working with cloth, or cleaning, sharpening, grinding, shaping, or refinishing anything else, for that matter.

You are probably the most likely to guess the mystery object, seeing as how you are the most likely of our regular players to have used one of these or seen one of this particular design, but you probably wouldn't find one this fancy in a hardware store. This particular object is still in working order but has not been used in years, and it might even be considered obsolete though simpler and less elaborate versions of a lower precision are readily available. You might find one of those in a hardware store or tool chest.

Eccentric cam-locking, strap wrench ?

That would explain the grippy looking curved
surface and the apparent lint [?] I think I see
in the opening photo.
