Update 4/10/09 - the answer is: Long's 1911 New Era Rope Spreader, or rope needle, it was used with a rope machine by sliding it along the length of the strands to force the formation of a tight and constant spiral, patent number 998,360. Congratulations to zander who got it right!

i believe its called a rope wrench and it is used to separate the strands of yarn being twisted into rope then moved up the rope to allow the strands to lay up into rope.
