I don't think it is a wrench because both ends are the same size. Maybe something used to take up slack in leather straping ? Sooner or later these things seem to get solved by someone. I guess there is no writing or numbers on it.

I'm going to say it's not a tool but a bar that goes between 2 shafts that rock back and forth. Maybe like for the valves on a steam engine or the shoe on a combine or thrasher.

Can't see any signs of wear, must not have ever been used for whatever it's purpose is.

Depending on if those two points are sharp or round,(can't tell from the picture) might be some type of splitting tool for woodworking. Seen a lot of stuff but never one of them.

I am going to agree with the dr. It could be used to tighten belting, leather or other material like webbing straps. my 2cents.
