Buck, what's a layout device?

Beth, no.

It's not a tool used to perform work (such as a hammer or saw), it's a device that performs a function.

By layout device I mean something used to transfer cutmarks or lines onto a workpiece such as a compass, chalk line, ruler, framing square, etc.

When you turn the knob does the vertical arm move?

To me it looks like it jams in something. The top arm spring loaded to release with a button push. There also appears to be a point underneath. I just can't work out how it is used.
