I posted this in Tractor Talk. It has not been identified yet. Maybe someone on here will know what it is.

Question - Does the handle ratchet the jaws open/closed or is it just to lock it in a given position?

What is on the ends of the arms, are they loops? It strikes me as something related to livestock, designed to hold something spread apart. Too small for use with horses or cows, but maybe some kind of speculum for sheep or goats? I know nothing about sheep shearing, but maybe related to that?

I think it just locks it in position.

One interesting feature is that it is near its smallest adjustment. were it to be used to spread a surgical opening, it would need to be a massive opening, not likely. Jim

Hmm....apparently I just thought I replied to this yesterday.

To me, it looks like it could have been used to control water flow, such as at a dam or for the overflow of some pond/lake.

I suspect this is simply part of something. It would be worth trying to sidelight the cast stamps to see if you can discern any more detail.

I thought it could have been to hold open grain bags if it had a hoop. Similar to this patent image. But I may be way off.

I do not have the item sir. There is someone who is selling it. I think it is old and cool. I was wanting to know what it was first. I may just go ahead and buy it and then check it out better.
