I picked this up in a box of stuff from an estate sale/auction. I believe its used like a preacher to help remember where original pivot holes were located (in relation to another hole in this case). Any idea what it's called or what they cost if purchased?

Yep. Adjustable case opener. One that I don't have in my collection.
These things have multiple other uses. ie; if you lost the spanner that undoes the angle grinder blade.

Such things come in many shapes and sizes. Over the years one tends to get quite a collection of them.

Here's the most recent addition to my collection.

You could use it to turn strike star wheels maybe?
