I was hoping somebody would have ID'd it by now so my brain could take a break, lol.

It reminds me of an old vegetable peeler handle, but the chain is throwing me off.

Possibly a part of an old rat trap. It looks a "rat trap" bike pedal which were presumably named for their resemblance to rat traps from the same era. Just a thought.

It does appear to be some sort of snare or trap to me, although I have never seen one exactly like this one. It may be missing part of it.

RobbyBobby, I posted your pic of that item on my metal detecting forum and after 123 looks nobody has identified it either, except the single response said maybe part of a trap. I'll chime in if someone ID's it.
Cool. I am stumped as to what it is. Trap is the most logical answer i have heard. Thanks for for all and any ideas.
