    So that we won't all have to log onto the bergmanusa site, could you possibly copy and paste the picture? Thanks.

    Sorry guys, I don't know how to copy and paste. Tried what I could but nothing worked. Anyway, it sorta looks
    like some sort of all metal shovel handle.

    It looks like some anti-tank device.

    But it could be just a pipe segment.

    The green powdercoat gives the thing a real World War II military look.

    Would help if we had some idea as to the scale of this. A picture with a ruler would help.

    Looks like an axle or spindle for some form of machinery. Then end on the left looks like its been precision machined for accepting some other bit of metal.

    It’s an acupuncture needle (for dinosaurs).

    It appears to be a tent pole used with a shelter half. Each soldier carried 1/2 of a tent in his kit. It consisted of a tarp and three segmented poles. Two soldiers would combine these pieces into one tent when needed.

    N.K.

    It does look a little like an old shelter-half tent pole, but, it looks to be all steel . . . could it be a pintle mount?

    Now now, there's no need for profanity. :neener:


    Besides, it's clear to me that what we're looking at in this pic is much, much more ancient than any run-of-the-mill WWII object.

    What we have here, ladies and gentlemen, is Goliath's Toothpick. :neener:

    That's 1/4th of a grid square.

    Looks like a tool for removing boy scouts from horses hooves.

    I was thinking it looked like the perfect tool to scrape elephant poo off of tank treads. :neener:

    That is one heck of a big firing pin. Looks like it came out of Paul Bunyon's AR-15.

    Well, a few things it isn't.

    It isn't a pintle mount for a MG.
    The pintle pin is on the gun. The mount is a socket for it to fit in.

    It isn't a shelter-half tent pole.
    They are wood, with a rolled sheet metal pin on the end.

    It could be a pole segment for a very large wall tent, but those used to be mostly wood as I recall.
