Another New Toy

Post by Abes on Fri Aug 02 2013, 21:01

This came in the yard today dated 1886 -1892, boss let me have it for scrap value was going to take the handle off and run it off an engine but think instead will just keep it for a static display, now I know what it is but how many of you do lol

hmm - I think you're being crafty and hiding the real workings on the back side of this picture - so my guess is a rather poor attempt.... some kind of spring manufacturing device?

Wild stab in the dark, for winding twine/wire onto/off of a spool?
