Clearly it's a crank.

Like this thread.

Yeah but for what? It doesn't have a handle that spins so I don't think it is for some old tractor or anything like that, maybe for part of a well?
>>
>>935995
>>property is on a well
for winding up the bucket
its a wind up

Almost looks like some old hydrant tool

I was wrong. Not a hydrant tool.
It is actually a tractor crank tool

It's a crank to start an engine. They used them before engines had starters.

OP thats a crank. A special item used for gaining access to certain puzzle locked areas.

>>936717
sometimes it even needs to be modified or combined with another piece in order to work.

Too rusty to tell but it from one of two sources.

1. a vehicle made before electric ignition
2. a Farm tractor made before the mid 1950.

They were used to push the cylinders to the top of the compression stroke close to the spark plugs.

Cool find, but not worth a whole lot.
>>
More precisely, cranks were used to rotate engines through a few intake/compression/ignition/exhaust cycles in order to start them.

It has an eyelet for hanging on a wall so it may be another sort of crank but it's not for a fastener. Tractor cranks typically don't have eyelets because whatever was connected to said eyelet would wrap around the crank during use.

Fuck I'm old.

could be a crank for an old wood burning stove to move the ash down into the ash box
>>

I feel like it isn't a crank for a tractor. It doesnt have handle that spins, so it would be a real bitch to turn it over and over

Allen wrench from B.C.

Didn't engine cranks have some kind or one-way release so it would pop off when the engine started? That thing looks dangerous because it would stay on and keep spinning.

My sailboat has something like that, different style, but it gives you mechanical advantage for pulling the boom back.

I'm going to second this since this thread is still going
>>
>>937246
>>938750

third this. here's one with the same triangle shaped drive end.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Antique-Metal-Wood-Cook-Stove-Woodstove-Grate-Handle-Parts-Hardware-/182004824380

also the handle part doesn't "spin"
so presumably for something you're maybe not even turning a single full rotation
>>
Had one on old coal fired furnace.knocks ashes down.

enjoy your lead poisoning OP
