Wheel Used For?

Can anybody explain what this wheel was used for? I was told it came out of a brickyard. It stands 6 feet 5 inches tall, steel outside rings are 2 inches apart and are made of 1/2-by-2-inch flat steel. My nephew put the new spokes in it for me.

I saw another wheel at a museum that is like this one but it is only 6 feet tall. The man in charge of the museum has no idea what it was used for either. I’ll be waiting to hear from the readers of this great magazine.

I'm going to completely guess on this one, and say that it is a press of some sort used to press bricks from clay or ceramic by rolling over them.
