Are we seeing the entire thing, or does it sit on something where the brass bushing are?

What you see is what you get, and it's all the submitter of the image has as well Ron. This is a tough one!

It appears this "What's It" even had the folks at MWTCA stumped! We may have to post another What's It and see how we all do with it. This was a hard one!

It appears to me that the knurling on the two center pieces has different patterns.   What i want to know is; do those spin on a central shaft?   Do the brass pieces spin or are they part of the central shaft?

Looks like a couple of pulleys  between the bushings The wood surface is rounded except for one side as though it would be resting on a surface when in use. The handles  may be for setting belt tensions, probably in a weaving process.
