Looks like it is threaded with a heavy yarn ,string or other? So maybe something from spinning/weaving industry?

Well, for one thing it's almost certainly upside down. Perhaps a view of the top / front / side might give a better perspective. A lot of things are difficult to discern from a bottom view. Looks as if there is a dial and surely some numbers or words.
Doesn't look heavy enough to be part of a machine tool but looks industrial, so yes, perhaps some form of textile machinery.
It's like one of those photo quizzes but without the prize. Or any clues....

Yes, more pics would be helpful.
My best guess so far is a post-bolting stable door latch.
