    It looks like a "plug cutter" for boring holes in cork stoppers in a chemistry lab. The different diameters allow for inserting different sizes of glass tubing.

    Here's a discussion I found which mentions a similar tool:

    The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.

    Fencepost, thanks so much for your help. I'm new to the forum and haven't ever posted until today. I knew someone would be able to identify it. Thanks again.
