"Well, we don't have a scale on site to get exact but a guesstimate was made of 35 lbs - I'll try to get an accurate weight next time I get there. In the meantime the exact dimensions are as follows: height including handle =…"

"Not sure about the 1 or 2 man part, but with all that steel pounded into the bottom and around the border, it could be pretty heavy."

"Thanks. It's just that at 3 foot tall, it doesn't sound all that heavy, even if solid hardwood, one person should be able to lift and carry that around easily enough. Also, see if you can find out the diameter of the item."

"I don't know how heavy it is, but it's only 3 feet tall, it may in fact be a one-person tool. I agree, it is most likely a ground/cement tamper, though I can not find one the same either, it may be a one-off DIY design."

"I still have not located another example, but I believe Fred is correct.  This would be part of a two man "Ground Pounder" tamper, with a wooden dowel inserted through the opening.  My friend that specializes in primitive tools,…"

"Meant to say that the metal on the bottom are the ends of wedges driven into the wood with a hammer to make it fit tightly with the steel rim or ring. Think of an axe head, same thing."

"Thank you all! If I find any more clues about this or the property I'll post them. There have been a few finds here, more easily identified like old saws etc, but some others will need some identifying I'm sure and this seems like the…"

"I think it is for soil compaction. The bottom looks like it has pounded a few rocks/cobblestones. Rope through the hole with a man on each end and a man holding the top handle to "guide" it. Lift, drop, repeat."
