I have feeling it has something to do with watches. That's why I placed it here.

You're right. I believe it's used for pressing gears and pins.

More for clock making I think. Staking, peening, crimping holes smaller, pressing gears onto shafts, etc. I paid CA$35 at a local auction for mine.

E.g. the rounded ones on far right are great for pinching a hole smaller to make a pin tighter fit.

Used primarily for the Watchmaker. The size of the stakes and dies are too small for most clock making/clock repairing…but not all. The tooling is a VERY hard steel. Use caution or you can easily fracture the business ends. They can break like glass. Don’t ask me how I know this! Anybody doing serious watch repair would definitely need one of these. In my parts they do not command a lot of money. It’s a shame, they are made of extreme quality. And if a watchmaker they are like of your hands. I kinda fancy the Levin made...Dave

Yes this is a staking set. And it is more frequently used by watch repairers, but certainly can be used for clock repair as well if the wheels with arbours can fit within the Z axis clearance. All of the parts in the front are called stumps and are used to support various watch parts.

There are a few for sale here: http://www.execulink.com/~lfoord/tools.html#staking

Stacking tool is a must if you are going to do clock and watch repair. Replacing pivots is impossible with a tool to drive dead straight, it must go on straight to get it as tight as possible. I would call that pictured as one of the better and quite complete, just what one needs. And a little bit better than $200.00

Learned something new today. Literally this week I was curious how Duncan pressed gears onto shafts for the 1950s parking meters. Now I have a new addition to my tool list.
