Looks more like iron or steel (encrusted in clays and oxidatation)?


this looks more like a piece of wood that has been carved to me, but i have not actually seen it upclose so i cannot say.

Since it is so heavy is there any chance it was supposed to be stationary? It stayed still while the water went 'round and 'round. For what reason I would have no idea.


the side of it looks like it locks into gears. and also the cone shape of the gears makes me think it wasnt sitting the way it is in this picture.

It could have been part of some contraption where it was mounted sideways to move grain or some other solid out of a silo and into a smaller container.
