    This steel bar has 1 fixing bolt it would seem it may have been attached to an edge, maybe as a guide or to protect.

      possibly a chisel rest or guide for a lathe.?.

      I'll guess its a thing to help protect (as you sorta suspect?) a corner of an old carriage, wagon, or cart of some sort...?

      I'll go with Bobby's lathe rest.

      Thanks Bobby, AnythingObscure and Blunderbuss for your helpful advice.

      How big is your mystery?
    6. Montytarnie, 11 months ago
      Horseradishman, it's 465 mm x 50 mm and very heavy.
    7. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 11 months ago
      The head of the bolt is made to fit smooth & flush so something can roll or slide smoothly over it. Still say it is a knife rest for a wood lathe. (A large lathe)

      I would not think it to be for a lathe. Lathe tool rests have a fixed post that mounts in a swivel base. This is 18 inches long, they do make rests that long but over 12 inches they have two fixed posts usually. I have them up to a foot long for my lathes and find this being a rest difficult to believe. Even back as far as 1914 they weren't built this heavy nor did they have up swept ends.

      I also have wood lathes and metal lathes and have not seen a rest like this. Protective edge seems possible.
      I am wondering maybe a reversable tooth for a earth moving bucket? Can't find an example tho. Any history Monty? Where found, etc?

      Are the ends "up swept" ends or is that an illusion ? Is it straight along the convex side ?
