This was found on an old farm. It weighs 50 pounds. I am trying to find out what it is.
This looks like a weight for a Pulley system. A Pulley system is used for machinery, farm equipment , and even exercise machines. With the groove cut into it and weight makes it appear to be a vintage pulley weight.
This belonged to a pulley system that was used to move larger pieces of equipment around or up in the air. I think this was used when they were working on the motors of the farm equipment and would use this pully to help remove the motor from the tractor.

Can someone please tell me what this thing is?
Wow this is a stumper! Are the 4 spool parts electric do you think? The arms with the hooks are adjustable and there are rollers and a crank, so I'm wondering if the electricity moved the jig side to side while the hand crank was used (wild guess here) to pull sheeps' wool or something up and then through the rollers?
You have the hooks on the bottom of the table to hold either buckets or something else in place. The 4 posts are spindles that would take up the item after it has been cleaned and washed. I was thinking it was a wool separator that had the 4 spindles on it so that the person could use 4 spinning wheel to spin the wool.
