I found this in a box lot from an estate auction. It appears to be a tool devised to hold something for insertion??? The little clamp is adjustable and locks by truning the handle. Overall length is about 6 3/8 inches. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Your item is called a spoon. It's used in the paper/book binding industry to measure/count sheets of paper. Used primarily for making pads.
