Looks like a window weight to me but not sure with it having a hollow inside, hopefully someone else knows for sure!
Thanks, that would be very cool. I found 2 of them near each other. The setting of the site doesn’t lend itself to a big clock, but you never know! I’m guessing this was a gold mining area and am not aware of any home sites, but there is rumor of an old barn……love the mystery.I think it might be a weight for a grandfather clock.
Thanks, that’s awesome! I knew it was something good! I’ve been reading up on this since I read your post. My kids are both mechanical engineers and they’ll get a kick out of the weight and force distribution! Lots of neat diagrams on the internet. And they both thought metal detecting had nothing to do with engineering!!! 😊
