A wire bending jig?

Are the feet at the bottom integral to the tool or just there for display purposes?

I think that it is a hemmin aid to allow the hem to be pinned an even distance from the surface before sewing. I believe it's called a Skirt or Pin-it Hem Marker and some can be used to hem trousers or curtains. I believe this model was made in Dayton, OH, just a 40 min drive due east. Then again, I've been known to be wrong on more than one occasion.

I not sure how tall it is but looks like a tiller for your bow {arrow} You put your bow on top pull string down hold it there in that notch then you stand back to see witch limb needs more wood taken off they both must bend the same i made same bows in my time.
Here is two on the lef is a shot one with a leather backing on the right is a long bow both are 60 lb. pull

Hey oops, when you say leather backing is it a full length piece that covers the outward side of the bow? What purpose is the leather? Makes me think it would be a safety feature when one weak arm snaps off when you draw back on the bow. Ouch!!!

Is that a caboose lantern on the right? What's the name of the lantern on the left? What kind of wood did you use on the bows?
