Hi Bobpat,
I have moved your question to the main forum as it will get answers here.
If you could post a picture that would be great but I think you may have a jacot tool. These are used for polishing small pivots on pocket watches, watches and platform escapements. They take a bit of practice to get used to as they are driven by a bow with one hand and the other hand is holding a burnisher which you run back and forth over the pivot to polish it. In the box should be a pivot gauge which you use to measure the size of the pivot and then you can transfer this to the corresponding runner.
