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. This video will give you an idea of how it is used.
