Hi there folks! I have this item I bought at a flea market last year and haven't the slightest clue what it is or what it was used for. An elderly gentleman suggested this may have been used on the railroad but was equally confused. The only theory I have is that this may have been used in coupling/uncoupling train cars. Otherwise, I'm completely confused. Here's some pictures of this. Anyone knows what it is?

This is my first attempt at using a digital camera. We finally got the darn thing to download to the computer without shutting down the computer! sign1 PS. The background clutter is due to a fall cleaning project in progress.
