I think oops and darren are both right I've used it before when helping to put up wire and barbed wire fencing.

I'm three posts too late!! It is either to pull rope/wire taut, or to grab the side of some thin material(sheet metal, tin,etc.).
It appears to be in excellent condition. Someone spent some serious time and effort to make it look so nice.

It's a cable puller.

Not for rope ;)

Only rednecks use it to pull barbed wire :mrgreen: Good guys use stretchers for barbed wire ;)
