After a few weeks of guessing, only two responses were submitted from the readers.
Larry Martin from Valparaiso suggested that the mystery device could be an elevator chair from a single-row corn picker, while Justin Ramsay guessed that the device may be an early form of barbed wire.
While the guesses can continue, the mystery remains.
