Mystery tool 29

This is another one that comes from Tony and the Land of Oz.

I'm back from my waterlogged hike and will take a little while for me to catchup on all that has transpired here on the board. :D

Unfortunately it is the best picture that I can find, to help it has a small groove behind the left hand pointer finger that the sliding tapered part can fit into.

My first guess was for bending over the edge of a piece of sheet metal but I was wrong.

i suspect it may be an indexing or depth stop for the edge of a square or ruler. it looks similar to a set of brass rafter square stops that i have. except for all the manicuring. ;)
