    Three iron items from old mill, ice, and farm site. Any ideas?

    Dug in the yard of an old grist mill homestead. I'm sure it was a farm also, as well as a location for harvesting ice blocks. I've pulled ice block poles, buck board springs, etc.

    Thanks for the help!
    I thought the buckle may have been too big for horse tack, but I guess a belly strap or even oxen.
    Thanks for the clevis direction. Perfect.

    Nagant: A tiller head was my first thought. But those kind of forked tines that stick out would never hold up in our rocky north east soil. And there's no wear on them either. I was fixated on some kind of barbed wire feeder ..

    Number 3 is an evener. The holes are for setting the plow or what ever in line with the horse/mule.
