It’s used to trace the outline of objects that don’t set flush to the surface of the tracing paper allowing you to make a more accurate trace.

Then there’s this thing...

And I built almost exactly what you described above using a block of wood, slanted hole for pencil, and a vertical “ruler” with a “sharp” edge. It was actually a strip of acrylic with a taper ground on the scribing edge to align with the pencil point. It is a bout 12” tall for larger turnings etc. Don’t have a picture but could get one if you’re interested.
