Is it some kind of jack ? Obviously not for automobiles.

You got it John, it`s a buggy wheel jack ya slide it under the axle so it sits on one of the shelves then pull the handle down and it will raise it enough to take a wheel off. :)

That's a cool tool Lenn. My Grandfather was a wheelwright and we still have lots of his tools here on the homeplace but I've never seen a jack like that before so it's a new one on me. I remember one of our neighbors having a buggy still parked in their driveway when I was a kid. No grass growing under it either.

Fire a levergun big enough for that to be the rear sight elevator and you will need an orthopedic surgeon to put your shoulder back together. :lol:

That would be one big lever gun :lol:
Gunny back when we had horses we thought about having a buggy or a sleigh for winter but those days are long gone.
Growing up we had a golden lab her name was Lady, one of the best dogs we ever had.
Lived to a ripe old age but then she ran across a hay mower and cut one front leg off but she came through that and got along on three for a few years but we finally had to put her down from other issues, i like those brown labs.

I had a Lady as well! It's been said you are blessed with 1 perfect dog in your life- that was my Lady. She was a BIG black Lab, 96 pound female is in heard of ( that isn't fat anyway) I trained her with hand signals, would retrieve anything, hunt anything. She decided to jump out of the bed of my truck one day, tearing up a knee BUT she limped to the pheasant she smelled of saw and flushed it. That wound up being a bone spur that went undiagnosed for years and arthritis wrecked the knee.
My Yellow lab, Dixie was a scardy cat, thunder, gunshots, loud stuff just kept her ducking for cover. She developed cancer in her eye,vet removed it but that dreaded cancer returned, almost 14...
Now I have Winnie, I call her a blocholate, her mother a chocolate and her sire was black- you can really see the difference in her coat. She only hunts chipmunks & squirrels. Claro is my chocolate, Winnie's daughter- if you look up bird crazy in the dictionary it will show a picture of Claro! Parker is my black- so black she looks navy blue in sunlight. She is bird crazy but just as happy to hunt chipmunks! I hope to breed Parker soon!

My Dad was around when most people had buggies or wagons. He was born in 1929. I need to ask him if he remembers seeing one of those devices.
