Treasures from the depths of the bicycle dungeon

Ludicrously Big:
Big Big Big
stem details

The work area:
tools and such
and from a bit further back

Broken bike:
Broken seat tube

I think I know what this does, do you?
Any Guesses?
Leave guesses in comments.

Stems ahoy:
Assorted Kelly Stems

Wheels and tires drip from the ceiling:
Bike dungeon

The rest of the broken bike:
Stealth cross bike

I dunno what it is, but it looks like a cool spinny aroundy thing.

I suspect it has somethiing to do with perhaps carding wool or making yarn?

with my beginner's knowledge of knitting, I don't think it has to do with wool or yarn; doesn't look like any spindle I've seen.

an early-industrial torture device?

An early device for taking care of
Carpel tunnel syndrome.

That or a Patented Palmer Peach Pitter.

If it's the rare version, it does both.

As others have sort of said, I believe it is a centrifuge for a single test tube. Note the adjustable weight at one end to allow for balancing while spinning.

Either that or a Turnip Twaddler.
