Hey!, good catch! ...but why would you charge with such a mass the device to sense? And have you noticed the tiny holes all around the shank? Does not looks like the classic spring loaded Ball-Lock to provide some audio/mechanical feedback to some kind of crank-loaded device?

Happy late birthday Diego!!!

Perpendicular wear marks in the ID could be indicative of a tool holder as well.

Nautical capstan or ratcheting device....hmmmm, possibly. I'm not familiar with anything nautical however.

How about possibly some type of centrifugal clutch, the inner race?

Thanks!, there is still some pie at the fridge anyway! :)

Sure, but I think the teeth are slightly too hard and too short for a collet or tool holder.

Think of it as the place to attach some removable crank!

That looks like a BIG possibility too! :)

How about a picture with a ruler to see actual size?

thinking about it, I almost think it's a centrifugal clutch for a snowmobile.
