What is it?

I've been collecting unusual objects for quite a while, and several years ago I started posting them on this site as puzzles for visitors to figure out what they are. Most of the items are mine but a few belong to others, if you aren't interested in tools there are plenty of other type objects that have also been posted.

For first time visitors I recommend this archive for a wide variety of some of my best pieces.

The metal parts sticking out from the two hubs are connected where they cross.

After loosening the set screw, the hub on the left can be pulled to cause the pieces to retract.
