The hook is a lot like a taffy pulling machine has. I can't say it is that however.

A mop wringer? really? I guess Im just not seeing how that would work, or what the two bottom pivoting brackets would be for.

A Google search under "primitive hand mixer" images brought up one pic of our mystery tool. :) It was identified as an "antique primitive hand crank gear mixer whisk kitchen tool" o_O So there you have it...… a positive id.;)

After more than an hour of searching antique mixers, dough mixers, candy, paint, …… and so forth, I'm leaning toward maybe a dough mixer or a mixer for some other type of thick liquid or semi-fluid material.

Patrick, I see some letters in the one pic. What are they?

I would think the "hook" is too short to mix anything? Also what is the function of the wire "foot pedal" . Yes the letters on the casting will be a good help.

So basically it is the mop, the long handle and mop material is gone. The mop was attached to that loop hook and when in use it was also looped over the lower floor head. just dip and use, hold over bucket and crank handle to wring out. I recall my grandmother had a similar mop but used worn out laundry socks, instead of the commercial cotton mat. I assume that the mop material replacements were also avilable.
