What is it? Set 322

    Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
1843)    Intersting device. Given the size, I would guess that it     is fired from a CO2 or compressed air weapon and used for     capturing fish underwater.
    It looks as though the line feeds in through the back and is     secured by a knot in the hole visible in the side near the back.
1844)    Looks like a support for a hit frying pan or something similar     with minimal transmission of heat to the table top.
1845)    Hmm ... something to support the neck and head of a mummified     corpse -- perhaps in a pyramid?
1846)    Hmm ... choices:
    Forged steel version of brass knuckles?
    Something for forming part of a sling for lifting heavy loads     and keeping them balanced?
    ???
1847)    Hmm ... no size given? Some kind of reminder while counting     out some product? One pointer is where to start, the other when     to stop.
1848)    Looks like a window grate from an old jail cell -- still     embedded in the concrete window sill, but with the rest of the     window missing.
    Or perhaps a strainer for a sewer -- dropped in to block large     objects passing through?          Now to see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.

Your second guess is a good one, it's part of a hay elevator and carrier and is used to get the desired elevation of the hay fork, check out figure 3 in the patent:

1845 is easy, it's a head rest from an Egyptian tomb. These are still used in parts of Africa the way we use a pillow.
