What Is This?

It goes from vertical to horizontal via a rope on a spool. There is a series of holes and a peg so it can be set at a variety of degrees of elevation. The floor beneath it is the same plank as the rest of the room. No reason to believe it was ever anything else.
 
That is quite an interesting contraption. How far does it raise and lower? What is under this on the lower floor?
 
This device is in the grain storage area of our old mill. No idea what it is or what it's for. Haven't seen another one in any of the other mills we've been in. Friends have offered lots of suggestions as to what it is, but I don't think any of them have much merit. Would love to hear if anyone knows what this is. Curiosity is starting to get to us.
