The image below is the current MWTCA "What's It" image for you to research, and tell us all here in this topic post, just what the heck is it!

Remember, the first accurate answer wins a one year membership to the awesome organization MWTCA!

So without further Adieu, "What's It!" Submit your answers (and fun commentary) in the reply box. And win a one year membership for MWTCA!

Keep in mind, the MWTCA does not know what this item is either, the image was submitted by one of its members for us to research. Lets help MWTCA find an answer.

Concave knurling tool?

AJ, I am not sure what that is, can you submit images or other evidence of what this may be? Very interesting answer!

Keep in mind folks, this may not be a woodworking tool at all! Could be something off an old ship?

Here is my thought, it's something that has to do with cable or rope. Some type of hand held come-along, not sure but that is my best educated guess.

Now remember guys, there is absolutely nothing wrong with guessing, or educated guess's. If your educated guess hits right on after we find out what it is, you win!

But if you want an immediate win, without the wait, you'll need to back up your answer with verifiable references.

Great job guys! And great answers! Let's keep it up!

I have been scouring the internet using many of the educated guess's in this topic, and have found nothing yet. I have googled many words using your answers and a combination thereof, but no luck, no hits, no images.

I am currently looking at old tools that a ship builder may have used, or implements that may have been used on a ship to handle rope or whatever. Wish me luck!

This thing made noodles with a grained texture. It was pictured in Gulia Child's special, "Roll your own" Not only  did it roll noodles, it could make ropes could eat. After pot was made legal here, it made rope noodles you could smoke or eat.:D
