When putting up some thing up like a clothes line and my grand dad would thread the smooth wire through the hole drilled in the cross pipe top one of my uncles used this to clamp onto the smooth wire line ...there's a groove in that plate that the top bar will apply pressure to when the two finger trips are pulled together.  Thumb fits in the left one and pointy finger goes in the other right one;  while some holds the wire firmly the other person has time to cut the wire and tie it off without losing the tension.  Pretty cool tool.   Who's next?

My OH thinks it may be something to do with sea fishing.

Or my guess something to hold a branding iron with.

No, nothing to do with FISHING, but is does have something to do with holding/controlling something ...that's a hint!

  It is indeed a 'Bull Puller' - clamp onto the ring in their nose, wrap the twine around he tong handle and lead the ornery beast where ever you'd like him to follow; the tricky part was getting them tame/trained to allow you close enough to get that clamped onto the ring he'd grown up with hanging through his nostrils!  LOL
Your turn ...bring something odd and really unique in here for us to guess!

Boot Jack ...used one every day when growing up; best method for pulling off our boots without having to ask a sibling to grab ahold of a manured covered heel.

Give it another go ...that was to easy!  Find something non-farm usage!

Still use mine. Only it's wood...a cast iron one might scar the boots.

This iron type would be kept for our Rubber Muck Boots -
one in the barn and one on the back porch
 


This was what we had all around the house for all of our boots >

Made in our High School Wood working Shop Classes or 4-H
classes - given as gifts to friends and family members. Notice
how the support brace is higher then the English style; the
western boot heel is much taller then the English riding boot.
