Any ideas on what I believe to be a fuse but to what exactly?

Definitely not an artillery fuze, from any era of history. Notice that the threads do not go all the way up to the cylinder's lip... and there are no wrench-slots or other means to screw it tightly in place. Artillery fuzes have to be more than just "finger tightened."

Cannonballguy , if or since this isn’t an artillery fuse , what other options other than cannons or weapons would be a better guess for what this might have been used for? Me personally I don’t
Possibly a bushing?
whats a bushing?
