CONGRATULATIONS TO LOBIZON FOR THE FIRST CORRECT ANSWER... AN ANTIQUE FOLLEY MACHINE... A sound effects machine from an old radio studio for use by a foley artist, turning the top crank caused the rotor to rub against the canvas cover and made a sound like the wind. The cage part below was partially filled with stones and when the crank was turned it sounded like rain. By engaging the lever at the bottom and turning the top crank the boards at the back would be plucked which produced the sound of thunder. WAY TO GO LOBIZON! (and thanks to ian for such a good explaination)
TODAYS GIZZMO IS 12 INCHES LONG AND WAS IN VERY HEAVY USE THE WORLD OVER. NOTICE THAT THE TIP HAS A RACHET DEVICE SO THE ANGLE OF THE TIP CAN BE CHANGED. THIS MADE THIS PIECE UNUSUAL  MOST WERE STATIONARY. NOTICE THE FILE DEVICE ON THE WORKING END. DEVICES LIKE THIS ARE STILL USED TODAY BUT THE MODERN PIECES LOOK NOTHING LIKE THIS


WHAT IS IT???
