It’s a bit set for a Dremel tool.

Are the bits tapped out of the base, or do they unscrew? They seem to be only removable with pliers

Don’t know, maybe a knock off set.

I have 3 Dremel tools and hundreds of bits, and have never seen anything like this, no idea what this is. Maybe a better picture and some more info, are these removeable, are the ends we can see sharp or rough like sand paper, etc.

It looks like someone was playing around with scrap metal and dremel bits and made a funky piece of art, or maybe a key to some weird kind of steampunk lock. It's a neat looking doohickie, whatever it is.

Edited to add: Actually the more I look at it, the more it appears to be the back of an old American Airlines pin that someone just fitted with dremel bits for the sake of weird art.

If they unscrew off the base they are known as tips for Digital or dial indicators

It’s a lawn dethatcher made to attach to a lawn mower blade. Should be 2 of them to work. You mount one on each end of a lawn mower blade, set it up high and it will dethatch the lawn.

I believe this was inserted in the heels of a woman's shoe before high- heels were invented.

Could be dental bits from an older lab tool .... that's my guess.
