Is it used to make sure the width of something is consistant, perhaps a bike wheel or tire?

Too technical, huh?

If you turn the knob do the black things move back and forth?

Would you call it a clamp or vise?

IS it used to grab onto something to aid in the removal?. Perhaps a tool used to remove the backs off of a watch?
