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

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
