A number of years ago I purchased a bunch of used bicycle tools. Most I was familiar with or figured them out - except this one. I'm not even sure it is a bike tool, maybe the seller was just messing with me. If anyone is familiar with this thing, please chime in. There are no markings of any kind. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure it is a tool for removing German Glockenlager crank arms- or could be used as one. They are pretty much hammered into place and very difficult to remove. look for "glockenlager werkstatt" and maybe something will come up.

Andrew, thanks for the response. I looked at glockenlager and I'm not convinced that is what it is for, but it gave me some insight on how it might be used. I think it is for removing cottered crank arms. After the cotter is removed, the two side screws go in the cotter holes in the arm, the rear screw levels and stabilizes the tool by resting on the crank arm and turning in the large screw forces off the arm. Sound logical?
