Well, it's not a tool, but it is wood, so I thought I'd ask here. I
picked this up today at a Salvation Army store. My best guess is a
cigar humidor, but I really don't know. I'm pretty good at guessing
what stuff is for, but this has me stumped.
An off-center hole is known as a "notch", Kev.
BTW, Smokes, there is no "top dead center" in a pipe,
only in piston positioning. And it would be centered
only if the mark were still pointing straight up when
it was drilled. It does appear to be a pipe marker punch.

The 'shaft' is about 3/8" dia and appears to be one piece with the
knurled and 'wings' section. My gut feeling is this would go into some
sort of a chuck.
The only movable piece is the center. Again, spring loaded and not
Does this help at all?

I'd agree with George. Looks like a punch for cylinders and small
spheres. The knurled portion is for gripping with your fingers. The
two "wings" are to position it on a cylinder's side. You give it a tap
with a hammer, and the spring-loaded pin makes your mark and springs
back up out of the way.
