    Metal and Wood Piece Found in Lake County, OH - Lake Erie

    I was walking the beach yesterday and found a lot of metal showing up. (Strong NE winds and big waves.) We found this piece and it looked intriguing because it is metal and wood. My husband and father-in-law (a carpenter) looked at it. They thought it was part of a hinge. Someone suggested part of a gate and another suggested part of a pulley.

    It is approximately 10" across and 1.25" thick.

    I have no idea what it is, but that is a very cool relic! I love the "unusual."

    Almost looks to be a racheting device that would ride atop a gear with the pointed piece acting as a stop to keep a gear from going backwards. Almost like part of a clock works.

    Yes same here. Good talking points with visitors. Looking at it again, a piece of a seat off of a ferry?

    I'm going with the drop-down seat hinge suggestion.
