Looks like part of a hoist. Either that, or it’s a yellow thingy with rollers. Not sure which.

Looks like the heads out of a Powermatic BetaMax player. But seriously, maybe the rollers are part of a banding tool?

If it had 2 more rollers on the bottom it could be a shop built cane bender. A handy lil’ device that you feed split green cane into the top over then under the rollers then continue with the cane exactly the opposite direction, leavin the cane in place and suspending it over steaming water for an hour or so then back the cane out…voila bent cane. Changing direction allows you to make a small s scroll instead of the larger C scroll….cane uses ? chairs & table leg supports etc & decorative items…. But you only have one set of rollers….oh well… nice conversation starter anyway ! Or could the bottom rollers be eliminated by dowels through the 3 holes on the sides ?....

Smart money is on yellow thingy with rollers. Not to get too technical.

Nah! I have seen these before in my travels by dog sled in the arctic. It is just photographed upside down. It’s an Eskimo inline skate for summertime when the ice recedes and the beaches are bare. : )

Looks like a door trolley made to run back and forth on a box beam. Maybe for an industrial assembly line?
