    I only have my phone ... No computer... So I need instructions on how to post pictures from my phone. And I am thinking I found an atlatl weight last weekend.

    this is a picture sheperdess had sent to me. It resembles very much one her father had found, and modified natural stone that had more prevalent indentations for tying on.

    Well this thread has been a struggle. I want to help but. I just need a little more effort here guys. One pic with no scale. No closeup of altered areas. Only one side presented.

    Post up some decent pics with something for scale and I will try again. Otherwise lets just forget this one

    Here are Sheperdess's pictures. I numbered them so that she and others can make comments about them. Sorry that it took so long. Been a busy day.

    Picture #1 & 2 I am comparing it to the one in my Dad's collection. I love the little divot on the end of his.

    Picture #3 I wanted you to see that one side is flatter while the others are rounded.

    Picture #4 I took it to the post office and weighed it. It's actual weight is 4.8, but it tipped the scale to 4.9 when I rolled it to the edge to fit it into the picture. Mine weighs a little more than Dad's.

    Picture 5 I am showing the flat side of it, which I believe it would have been against the wood.
    And #6 shows the polished sheen from use.

    In picture 7... The stone in the center has a groove down the middle of it on bother sides. And another on the edge as I am showing in picture #9. This grinding stone shows very smooth wear on all sides except the one opposite where they used it to chop the heck out of something. It is an awesome tool!
    My family has hunted this private land since the early 1960's. It has treated us well.
    Now let's hear what you guys have to say.
    A big thanks to Sandchip for communicating my pictures. And thanks to all else for you patience.

    I believe both are artifacts but suspect neither are weights. I would guess both are loaf pestles .
