    Tractor piece?

    I dug up this heavy piece at the farm property the other day. It was encrusted with years of dirt, rust, etc. At first I thought I had dug up a small cannon. NOT. Then I thought fire hose nozzle. NOT. Now I'm thinking possibly a part from a tractor?
    Any idea what it is, and possibly the age?
    Thanks,
    MM

    Not a definite ID, but it does look like a tapered spindle (lower axle). I had a 1950 Springfield trailer that had swinging axle/suspension that was slightly smaller but similar. Could also be from a tractor front axle.
    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.

    Thanks Guys. I figured it was tractor related. Anyone need it?

    Sure, I'll take it! Mine just broke, which is odd because its not as rusty as your's. They just don't make 'em like they used to.
    Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain
