    What is it? (Just for fun)

    I know what it is, but thought it might be fun to let people guess. If you know let us wait a couple days to educate those who do not.

    the photo is sideways, and the background makes it confusing.

    That just makes it more challenging! But if a mod can rotate the photo I’m fine with that.

    Rotated. File size is too small to change the resolution.

    I still don't know what it is?????

    I was thinking some kind of stretcher, either for leather or whatever else.

    I think it's incomplete,and is the release lever for a larger devise that works by ratchet action.The range of motion could not be enough to be a lifting devise ,and the handle is not overly strong looking.I Don't know why it has a little wheel,or roller on it.

    Not a head gate, the cross bar would hit the handle before you got it closed enough. No idea what else it could be though.

    1"x 4" furring on the side a 2x4 wall. It looks like some kind of a hinge is there also, garage type or maybe a cabinet opening?. Tool looks like an older fence stretcher.

    LIKE !!!

    In my day it could have been a child training device ...parents were allowed to use things like that on unruly kids .

    Actually there is not enough photo to see all of it and all the framing is confusing...where does it start and where does it end.
    Kind of like asking the blind men to identify the elephant ...cant see all the parts .
