    Default Watch Staking Tool ?

    I found this tool at a flea market yesterday for a couple bucks. It resembles (only this is much smaller) a staking tool that James Lea, "The Village Clockmaker" showed on one of his YouTube videos.

    Is it a staking tool for watch repair?

    Or should I just pull on the handle and see if I can draw a pint -- or a couple drops for a liliputian?

    You will need the stakes to go with it. That will be why you didn't have to pay much for it.

    For a couple of bucks you did fine, especially if "a couple" means two. As roughbarked said, you'll need the stakes, but those can be had. You might sell it to someone who has a standard, non-inverting, anvil. It would be an upgrade for them. Yours is a type of "Inverto" (K&D) with which you can use stakes as stumps. This means the stake can drop in through the top, business side up, and drop through a hole in the table and into that receiver in the bottom. That way the stake becomes the become the stump, which is the bottom part.
