"Single/double trees are attached to horse/mule implements by a clevis.  Some companies used their implement wrenches as the clevis pin. The pin would go through the implement beam and be there if you needed a wrench.  Here are 3 clevises with their wrench pins that I photographed on John Tabor's (TOOL TALK Johns48B) display trailer before he died."

The reason for the multiple holes in some models is:  to set the height of the drawbar of the pulled implement, (plow), so the animals are pulling it at the correct heigth, not angling up or down,   if pulled down it would cause the plow or cultivator to dig in too much.  Taller mules, higher setting.

Thank you!  It is marked "No. 04". 

EDIT:  With your hint - I did find a McIntosh & Heather No. 4 that appears correct with a couple of minor exceptions.

Two more "finds" on the property today.  The first, was found on a 40 acre tract we call "Ed's Pete's place".  There was a time when the last remaining slave family lived in a house on the property there.  The property, being the only tract not completely encapsulated into the estate, only touches at a corner with the rest and sits alone most of the time.  We have had issues in the past with "dumping".  It was in my inspection around the dump pile that I found this.



The second I found as I sat my gun and climbing stand on the ground inspecting a tree to climb.  Right there, at my feet it was.  I will leave it at that and a "whats it" for now.

Oily has more than one garden!   Nice two man saw, another great wall hanger.  That chunk of iron now, first glance I thought it was the top of a busted up anvil.   But no, the sticks look too big, so its a tool, looking for an eye for a hammer head.   No, those look like sprocket teeth, rough but even cut.  Now is that a cut in the top there?   Two pieces and it swivels?   Part of an early oil well pump?   Piece of a saw mill feed?   Come on, tell!

Wow!! your property got history.. 
"40 acre tract we call "Ed's Pete's place".  There was a time when the last remaining slave family lived in a house on the property there.  The property, being the only tract not completely encapsulated into the estate,"

 HOW BIG IS THE ESTATE? How many Tracts?

So what is it? did you dig it out? Clean it? measure it? Weigh it? 
Could that be a large star wheel, rotating on a mount? (like those rollers that breakup roads, or compress trash heaps.)

John was very close.   It is a rock drilling bit, and the style is known as a "roller cone".  Most used in these parts had tungsten carbide inserts.  It would have been used to drill an oil well, and would have originally looked like the attached.

It is now right at 200 acres of the original 1200.  I've not done anything more than take the picture as of now.  Its a good ways into the woods on FOOT.  Ever carried an 8" rock drilling bit?

Oily has more than one garden!

:-) I assure you the ONE I have is all I can handle.

Oh man, we needed a different picture!  I know those drills from hanging around oil rigs, a lot of them, when I was a kid.

If the hardware is on the other end of the saw, like it is at the near end?
  They're worth more than the saw blade.
There were several grades of upgrade hardware/handle attachment parts. The better ones could swing over and lock and then swing back and lock too. Most people just kept the hardware that came with the saw.  Usually cheap stamped non adjustable parts.
But a serious sawyer knew the better handles and adjustable angles would save hours of labor, maybe days time before the end of any given month, and worth the extra.
     
   That looks like a 6'+ blade?
  I didn't think those dinky sticks you got in Texas needed anything like that? heehehhe

That harness hames (copper knob) reminded me of a thing I saw awhile back.  A guy hand made himself a walking stick and had put a brass "hames"  knob on the top of it,  Looked real nice  Here is a link to some harness hames.  http://www.chimacumtack.com/horseharnesshames.html
I would like to try a walking stick with a brass knob.

It is a 6' blade with both ends having the attachment hardware for the handles.  A few pictures of the "sticks" in my yard.  The line oak I do not believe I could cut with this 6' saw.

This beech is very near to where I found the saw.



The oak is located at the woods edge of my groomed yard.

Here is link to a walking stick like the one I saw.http://www.brazos-walking-sticks.com/twisted-oak-hame-top-walking-cane/   with your wood carving skills it should be no problem,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,/then when some one asks,,Where did you get that cool walking stick?  you can say "Fresh out of the garden"  or if they ask,,,,What you been doing?  you can say  "Polishing my knob"

Today was a dig into an old barn on the property.  I had sworn off entering it until I could sure it up, as there is significant rot/decay and a huge risk of collapse.  While not directly out of the dirt, the following were found in a barn on the property.

I'm guessing a "Sander's Type"


A hame?


big 'ole fork


Makers marks are worn from the tag - anybody have a clue?




Soap Box Dirby Time


Air compressor?




2 reel mowers - one of which is marked Craftsman




A couple of hand saws


Cant hook?


I'm guessing part of a water well - but only a guess based on rope tied to one end


Would you call this a "log dog"?


I have NO CLUE - diameter is roughly 2-1/2"


A blower of some sort - Imma say probably more to do with the yard or home.


Singer


Dunlap


Ice tongs
