A good gritty image here Bill, and yes, it's definitely one of those.

That's what I'd call it. Kind of looks like an old heavy duty wheelbarrow...........Sandy

I thought it might be an old mangle, but am very unsure about that.
I am even wondering if YOU know what it is.
Makes a great picture, anyway, Bill.

I haven't the faintest idea Smile
I think it was purely ornamental when new; I find it even more ornamental now.....
At any rate, it is bound to be related to Jon Webber's Thingy Smile

The answer is quite simple. If it tastes of cheese then it's a Wotsit. Otherwise it's a thingy.

HTH. Wink

it's a knackersqueezer, anyone can see that, typically used by the Spanish priests back in the day .....

(God, makes me eyes water just thinking about it ....)

Lovely grain, BTW.

Trying to catch up - trust you're both well.
