Update 7/30/07 - Here's the answer:

Hops pole carrier: the hops plant is a vine and to help them grow they put a large number of 15 foot poles in the ground and ran wires across the top; the holes on the end of this tool are for straps, which would then go around the neck and shoulders of the worker and allow him to carry the pole.

Its a Riccon Wrench. In the early 40's oversized Blendal crunchers were used to chalup granite blocks for industrial mixes. Size was adjusted from scatia to rough froll and the Riccon nut needed to be adjusted to control size and mass displacement. The second world war disrupted the the granite chall industry when it was discovered that common beach sand could be substituted in all applications. The 42 ton blendal crunchers were soon melted down to make sherman tanks and the only surviving evidence that the industry ever existed is the odd Riccon Wrench, treasured by collectors and museums worldwide.
