What Is It? game 259

Once again, it's time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog! Do you know what the object in this picture is? You can win even if you don't know!

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 each win a 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?

Check out the What Is It? Blog for more pictures of the mystery object. Good luck!

Update: the mystery item is a a harness cutting machine that was made by The International Harness Manufacturing Company, of Cincinnati, Ohio. The first with the correct answer was ladybugs,  who wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! The funniest answer was from MEM, who said. "It's a heavy-metal harpsichord; very heavy-metal." That's good for a t-shirt, too! Congratulations to both winners, and thanks to everyone who played along. See the answers to all this week's mystery items at the What Is It? blog.

While everyone knows George Washington had wooden false teeth, very few know that this machine was the one he used to actually make them. Teeth could be stamped out in varying sizes ranging from "Polite conversation and cucumber sandwiches" (on the left) to "Gonna have me a 7lb Bison steak" (around the middle) to his political battle-teeth "Let's play a game called "Bite Me"... I'll start!" (on the right). By mixing up a set of completely mis-matched teeth, he was also able to confuse the hell out of the British by shouting out random Austin Powers quotes during battle.
