It looks like a machine for winding twine or something. I wonder what is missing from that square mortise. What is written on the piece of paper?

I'm going to guess that it was a peeler, the large wheel spins the smaller one with the shaft sticking out the side. There was probably an attachment above that shaft to do the pealing or another missing shaft that held the apple.
