What Is It? game 159

It's time for our giveaway collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog! Can you tell us what this object is?

Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. Post no URLs or weblinks, as doing so will forfeit your entry. Two winners: the first correct guess and the funniest (albeit ultimately wrong) guess will win T-shirt from the NeatoShop.

Please write your T-shirt selection alongside your guess. If you don't include a selection, you forfeit the prize, okay? May we suggest the Science T-Shirt, Funny T-Shirt and Artist-Designed T-Shirts?

For more clues, check out the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update: Vince had the right answer: the device is to hold logs while they are cut! Kelly gets the funniest answer prize for "The jawbone of a Domokun." She was the first of many to see a Domo-kun in this device. Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop!

It's a rubber sap saw. Two people cut into the rubber tree with the saw, going around the tree in a circular motion. The tree bark gets cut. You pull down the bark and the rubber sap comes out.

It's a saw to cut trees down near the base. Two people hold the ends and walk around in a circle. The teeth of the saw cuts into the trunk of the tree. It's adjustable so the teeth can bite further into the trunk until it cuts all the way through.

This was first used by the phillidelphia parking authority to boot model T 's for unpaid parking tickets. It fell out of use when it was discovered that people where just removing the booted wheel and installing their spare. It did remain around for some time to "boot" horses since their legs were not detachable.
