Yep, that for a well pump! The groove in the center is where a piece of leather (till rubber gaskets were readily available) was to seal the pump as you either pulled down Or up on the handle to crate suction and draw the water to the nozzle!

Very interesting. Must be a old one. I’ll be back to find the rest of it. Thanks
