    Disk for plowing?
     
  3. If that hole is about 1" and the "disc" is 16ish inches, then it looks like a single disc of a set of "disc harrows"........a pull behind farm implement for tilling the soil. Hard to tell from the pic how big it is?

  4. Plow part as others ahve said. Could be a furrow wheel from a small plow.

    Yup, as said by others. My vote is Harrow disc

    Farmed for years..... a common 16" disc blade fershure...
     
  7. That is a rare early Ford satellite dish. They weren't in use for very long. It turned out there were no satellites. Another idea ahead of its time.

    Seriously though, it looks like a disc for a farm implement to me too.

    Sharpen it some and it would be a pretty serious Frisbee--

    well its not a furrow disk anymore, its a potential grinder stand base.
     
  10. Makes a better beater bag holder.
     
  11. well if it was about 3" in diameter I would say it is an old hot rod carb cover for a Harley. LOL

    I think that most of the fellas are right about it being a farm implement piece.

    It doesn't want to roll around as a beater bag holder?
     
  13. Mount it to a stand with the curve upward like a bowl.
     
  14. Pour it full of drain oil and light it, "Let the games begin!!!!!" :D

    Weld a ~2" pipe to it about ~4 foot long.. makes a great base for a small vise, or grinder or whatever.. I have several in my shop like that..
    (Oh and for any mentally challenged folks, weld the pipe to the top of the convex side) :) :) :)

    Well, Henry Ford was well ahead in things that weren't invented yet. It is the first internet dish interface of the turbo vasculator multi-facited co-angled supercharger coupled with the azmuth of the fenestration of the Model T windshield in the morning sun. Sheez, you guys should know that by now!

    I have heard knife makers use metal from these disks to make knife blades.
