    Hundred pounds of Whatzit's?

    Found on the old farm yesterday. Didn't grunt like solid old iron should. Rang 84 on one end and 30 on the other. I was thinking used for maybe seperating seeds or whatever. Haven't got a clue. Any of you farm implement experts no what these are? Approx. 50 lbs. each.

    I wonder if she'll let me hang them on the wall?

    Looks like rollers off of the front of a old corn picker.

    Are those cast iron, they look like round rod has been twiseted around the bigger bar, then welded at each. If this is the case, I would say they are scroll rolls to spead out the fabric to avoid wrinkles before winding it up into a large roll to be shipped where ever for for processing. They would one right hand and one left hand, the would be driven about 10 percent faster than the fabric speed. I,m a little long on this, sorry

    Damn nice relic pieces there! They would look wonderful displayed in your home. They could also be used as self defense weapons in case an intruder broke into your crib to steal your stuff.

    Could they be rollers from an early model round baler?

    Absolutely they could be unicorn horns, until we find out what they really are. Definitely keeping them. Might just build a unicorn HH

    Very well could be. Will be talking to the farmer that owns the property next weekend. Hopefully he can tell me what they are. Heck, he might have buried them
