Yup,I believe you are correct. Works well for cutting flooring around complex shapes and decorative molding also.

Most all are correct in saying what it's used for and I believe it's called a contour gauge.

Don't get curious to see what happens if you pull one out.Duh[not my smartest move]. It takes along time to get them all back in.They still make them. I have used mine to copy the shape of an antique car bead and then make bead roller dies to match the bead on the bottom of the car body.It a great tool to have.

I had one, never used it. Gave it to son; he never used it either - but he never throws anything away so he still has it, if he could ever find it.
