    Not sure what they're made of, but have been told they have a velvety coating.

    That is my idea out the window then! Thought they may have been some sort of scratter used for grinding apples into a pulp.

    This is a description from the guy that found them.

    "Firstly, with the bracket, the top part of the unit can rotate in there quite easily, its looks like there might have been a ball bearing in there at some point as there is a dish to the very top part of the unit and a dent in the bottom of the bracket which would allow it to rotate.
    The ratchet and rollers: when the bar below the cogs is pushed in, it releases a brake below the rollers but the rollers can still move on the ratchet mechanism. The left hand roller can be moved (it feels like its sprung) to allow whatever to be threaded through then the brake could do its work. The rollers are covered in a velvet like material too.."
