Not a nail set...it could be used for that purpose if it were a big nail. And YT I suppose it could be used to "ream" something out. But that is not it's designed purpose.

It is not used for countersinking....

Those "dots" (as you call them) are not for Calibration. And those "dots" (your words) are all around the object...

My guess is that it's a pin that holds two things together. The taper helps align the holes and those "dots" are small holes for a retaining clip to go through.

Sorry it took so long Buck. I've been busy getting ready for a "for fun" chili contest tomorrow! It is not a pin. It holds nothing together......

Are the "dots" on the taperd part of the shaft concave or convex?"
