I recently bought a used Logan 200 lathe which I am slowly cleaning up. It also came with a box of mysterious odds and ends including a range of these:



The red and gold label indicates that they were manufactured by "Simonds Saw and Steel Company" and they are engraved 2M.T. 7/16 Hex
Although the company still appears to be in business under the name Simonds International, a Google search didn't turn up anything that resembled these adapters.
Does anyone have any idea what the original purpose was?
Thanks,
Clive

Holds something in an MT2 taper lathe tailstock. Not sure about the hex part but these type holders are normally for drill bits.
