    Found this in an old barn. It was used to twist straw to make ropes for binding sheaves of corn. It works like a brace would, with two handles that turn the hook on the end. It is all wood (except for the hook and binding) with wooden pegs and no nails. They say these are rare. I would like to know if anyone out there has one or could add any more info. Thanks! Rob

      It is also known in Hungary, it was used when wheat was harvested, you see a couple on the wall.
