mystery object - can anyone identify it?


Recommended Posts

seeing other threads on ID-ing random military related items, thought i'd throw this one up out of curiosity




there's no reason for it to be military related - at a guess, i'd say it's part of an old machine, lathe, shaper etc?

very little corrosion and heavy for it's size - feels strong


appeared in surface of yard (Victorian heritage) yesterday - guessing could be around 50-60yrs old

anyone shed any light on it's origin/designation - not much to go on but the pair of 'ball-studs' are quite interesting - the hole is not threaded/fitted with a grub screw - pivot point?


marked TR5871 DN5 and also carries the numbers 14 and 9409
