An old friend/neighbor gave me this about 30 years ago. The only markings are "H & E".

Looks like a Chevy key on a Chevy key fob. I bet the other thing could be used to bust the key fob open.

It's a chicken lip remover.

Works really, REALLY well.

Seen any chickens with lips lately?

My guess would be some sort of leather worker or saddle makers tool. The two clamps grip the leather then, as you continue to turn the crank the leather is pulled together for tacking or stitching.

Will it actually work this way...? or am I looking at the picture incorrectly...?

An old Uncle of mine, son of a German descent farmer, would tell me that item is a Whoa-haw for a horses neck! He had fun telling us kids tall tales of things that might have happened around the farm, when we weren't there!
Us kids would just roll our eyes, and pretend that everything he said was the truth.

Well - I have to admit that I'm not absolutely certain what this thing was used for. The old neighbor lady's ancestors ran a harness shop in the late 1800's. Her husband, the guy who gave it to me, thought it would have been used to stretch the leather around a horse collar so it could be stitched tightly. Sounds good enough to me. And yes Ken - it works like you thought it did. Good guess! (I think) :~)

It looks like some kind of medieval torture device that would turn you into a soprano. . .
