Your Best Non Nugget find?

Mystery solved...wagon spindle!

They had a cast iron bearing that was fitted into the wooden wheel. The picture shows the bearing, or boxing as it's called. I guess that was some old diggins!

I thought it was a nozzle also. Thats something the boys and I would throw on the "cool" relic shelf.

Great find!!

I was sure it was a nozzle of sorts too. There was a ~10' section of homemade flume wrapped around a mesquite in the wash itself that reinforced the nozzle theory.

 There were some sections of old road that were built by hand you can still see where they filled in low spots with cobbles. It's amazing to see the level of effort put into mining this area. 

I'm definitely saving it...more yard art!

I saw one of those once! Now I know what it is, congratulations!

All the best,
