    Not just a rust ball

    Dug this out back on November 27thAttachment 1658908 thought it was nothing special just a ball of rust and had just threw it into the bed of my truck with the mess of other rusted pieces.One day last week took another look at it and decided to try and ID it and to my surprise here is what I discovered Click image for larger version.

    It just looks like a broken carriage bolt to me. I don't see anything to "open" in the pics, but I've been wrong before.
    Good luck, keep us posted.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.
