Since you guys did so well with the raddle, do you have *any* clue what the pieces of wood in the picture below could be? There are 16, some have bolt holes, not all the same length, but seem to have pairs or 4-somes that are the same length.

To me, they look like old time cable clips. You put the tube part over your cord, and then nail or screw through one or more of the holes into the surface the cord is to run along, to keep it from flopping about and catching things.
Hm, don't think so, they are 3 inches long, inner curve diameter is over an inch, any cable that big would be hidden, not visible and shiny gold colored. I have cable clamps like that, and they are much smaller and not pretty.
I think they are a closet or drapery thing, but I'm not sure.
Keep thinking, I'm curious.
I know what I wanted them for, but am puzzled by them.

We have to use what is on hand. I know that will result in more wear on the body, but that's the way it is. We have about 25 giant nails hanging about. They may be 3 inches shorter than the one pictured here. Maybe they could be useful?
Maybe extra tire irons, we've only got two. That is if they actually are extra. We may not be able to risk their demise. Something like this:

Thank you Gerry for the link!! Cool, I learn stuff!! :D Me and mom were discussing something like this a while back, the little town we are in has a recycle place that there are just stacks and stacks and boxes and piles of newspaper. I'm REALLY startled, with all the people around here who heat with wood, that no one takes it and logs it up.
I love learning stuff!!! :D
This is a fun game to have going :D
I didn't make up the word Google Fu, that one has run around on the net for years. I know someone with serious Google fu skills who can find any useless thing out there. Isn't as good at finding useful things though... It's what is focused on that makes the difference between useful and non-useful google fu skills. Finding log rollers is useful :D
