You can host the picture on a on-line web site like photobucket and post the link or you can e-mail it to me and I'll post it for you. If you want to e-mail it just click on my user name.

What does the writing around the center say?

Does the wood knob turn or is it stationary?

The pointy part, does it rotate, move in and out?

Looks like it is probably some sort of old Dial Indicator.

The marks around the center wheel are graduation marks measured in tenths.
The wood handle does not move but will screw out.
The pointy part can be rotated but doesn't go in or out or screw out.

The tool is manufactured by L. S. Starrett

Gave you enough time.
It's a Starrett speed calculator for line shaft (or any turning shaft).
