It's for turning accurate diameters on a wood lathe.

I suppose it could be for that but I'd think it'd be tough. Seems like you'd get a groove maybe at best. Not sure how you'd move along the workpiece. That backside would hit the turned shoulder. Seems like the wrong kind of chisel for turning too. I thought maybe It was for finding and marking centerline on a dowel? I'm not a wood turner so I'll take your word. Thanks.

It is a gauge for measuring not for cutting.  You set the top bar for desired radius and caliper arm for desired diameter. When it slips on ...done cutting. You might have several for a particular pattern your making.

Here is a tool I picked up at a flea market----written on the handle is "Beechnut gum"---on the blade is " ship old stock first

Based on the writing maybe a tool to service a gum machine, like a finger to reach into a vending machine slot when refilling ??

It's a cutting tool. If you just wanted to measure, you would just use dividers.

That could get exciting if one weren’t careful

I see,a gauge attached to a cutter,that makes sense.

inter web says a metal severing tool, my understanding is it is an early air chisel sort of deal, you pound on the rounded lobe and the hook bill digs in, the one on the web looks more hooked, perhaps that one has more wear.

I bought this a year or so ago.

One of my better purchases.

Can you identify it?

Took me a while to find mine,  I see Menards is selling the green one like yours.   Mine is aluminum.
