Found at a site of a shop or store that was there in late 1800 to early 1900’s
Heavy cast iron, not a pipe. 8 “ long
Rounded tubular top side. Elongated grooved edges. One end has small tiny hole that enters into the piece
leading into a tiny groove. Tried to take clear pictures, hopefully noticeable. Was this off a motor or some type of machine or tractor

Being heavy cast iron, I'm guessing it is wood stove related.

It's about the right length for a lid lifter but doesn't seem quite right for that purpose. :dontknow:

Hmm not sure, end of piece has a small groove that engraved that leads to a tiny hole that exits the end. As if something went through that end. See picture 1 2 and 6. That dot at end on pic 6 is a hole to the inside. Any other ideas?
