Part of a windmill.
windmills can use wooden sucker rods and that is the metal connection for joining another link.

I think it is part of a water well windmill pump. Instead of a metal sucker rod it used a wooden one on top above ground. A metal sucker rod screwed on to the threads that went inside of the pipe. My guess it is homemade by a blacksmith.

That kinda makes sense. I forgot to mention that was rotted out wood inside it.

That is pretty cool. Found it on top of a hill next to the pens for running cows so that would also make sense as to where the location of it was. Windmill is long gone but interesting none the less.

Top or bottom of a sucker rod from an old well. The center part was wood.

I have one someplace and it was found at an old windmill with a wooden rod in it.
