Just a quick guess.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
You are right, and I will carry it a step further. I think it's a press for
a watchmaker. You place the circular plate on the table, selecting the hole
that is appropriate. You would place a gear or wheel below the vertical
pin, and turn the knurled thimble to drive a shaft either in or out.
