Are each of the small ojects perfectly round? And do the screw into the long object?

An air guage of some type?

Is that 5th ball on the other end?

Some type of alignment tool?

The ball on the right differs from the others only in size.

Not an alignment tool.

Do the balls only screw into the one end?
Is the rod hollow all the way through?

pacanis: As far as I know,the balls screw onto either end. I don't think it's hollow all the way through, but if it is or isn't makes no difference in its performance.

UB: Not used for anything edible.
