I considered that in my suggested answer, and said that if there
were recesses in between the post and the barrel around it to allow
concrete to flow in and set, this would make up for that.
Even wrenching down seriously on that large nut at the top could
shear the wire ring without something else helping.
It would probably be strong enough if the load were intended to
be a guy wire, pulling at an angle (say 45 degrees) instead of straight
up. And the spread of the base would make that pretty likely.
A photo of it disassembled would help greatly.
2845 gluing pegs?
2846, no clue.
2847 maybe an anchor designed to put into cement?

2849 no clue.

I have the answers for the first and fifth items this week, I need help on
Commenting again on 4829. This is a sickle bar tooth. This is a picture of
some of them, mostly modern ones.
Note that the blade goes back and forth. The tooth sticks out and provides
a blunt surface to force the blade against the hay. This cuts the hay.
This looks to be an old one. I have seen these go for $40. It is probably
an old junk one. But folks go crazy for any of that old country item. This
is what I think this cam off of.

It was a yearly ritual to replace broken parts and sharpen everything before
hay season. I use to help my grandfather sharpen the blades on an old
treadle grindstone. As I got older, it was me doing the sharpening, etc.
I will try this again. Google keeps changing my search around and
substituting what it wants.

Hopefully this will go through.
I give up. Do a search for horse drawn hay mower or something similar.
Every time I come up with something, Google goes back to the original search
and won't let me send what I want. I guess the folks who have horse drawn
equipment don't buy enough Google ads. Often I will try to do a search on a
specific spelling of a word. This is often an URL based spelling. Google
will substitute what it wants instead. And sometimes I am trying to put in
some quotation marks. And Google will change the search before I even
finish typing in my search works.
I am not going to fight it any more. Google can be a royal pain in the ass.

Might I suggest that you first try another search engine. My

I noticed that the URLs in your previous postings were *very*
long. I had the window widened to about 350 characters (in a
double-monitor screen), and it still folded to one and a half lines. :-)
Sometimes, you can work around this by trimming off the very
long first part of the Google url, and leaving just the actual URL of
Rats, I posted in last week's thread!
2846: The arms look spindly. I wonder if they're metal. Near the arms,
there's a wide groove across the board on the side that would be up. I
wonder if it's for slicing through something instead of cutting against
the board. The last raised portion could serve as a visual gage to
slice something into 1" pieces and drop them into a container about 24"
in diameter. I've never seen a barrel of pickled eel.
2848: Are the push buttons electrical? There are mirror sundials.
Perhaps XI is for the hour around 11 AM and the XII is for the hour
2849 I can not go along with that being called a tooth. I have been a ag
mechanic for 40 years and anyone in farming in the midwest calls them
guards,knife guards or some are rock guards or stub guards (no top bar
or point on them). If you look at any John Deere parts catalog you will
only find guards, no tooth.
Keep up the good work, I look forward to your pictures every week.
I guess you can tell that I'm not a farmer, I went ahead and changed my answer
this morning to guard, it does sound like a more official name. Though there are
plenty of hits on Google for both sickle bar mower teeth and sickle bar mower
finger, I agree that guard is a better term for it.
