It's said to be between 2.5' and 3'. Found in a back yard.

Is it attached to anything?
Is it the shut off for the water or gas main?

Looks like an old farm tractor hub. And it looks like it is only about a foot in diameter at the most. Who measured this thing?

I'd say tractor parts is a good guess...

Never saw anything like it used in plumbing...

A lady emailed me with the picture and said some people on another forum thought it was a pump part. Close but no cigar. She apparently measured it, and you know how us guys lie about measurements; so...

I was hoping she would pop in here and answer some of the questions everyone is asking. I sent her links to four Forums where I posted it. Maybe she will show up yet.

Those all look like gears and splined shafts. Someone from another Forum said it looked like a tractor counter weight. That's a possibility. She posted another picture that shows it standing up with a tape measure on it. I'll post that here.

Lets see if I can make it larger somehow. I guess I downloaded a thumbnail.

My guess is road grader, the part above the plow center of grader.
