Yes! You have it Ian. I am told it is an 'Edward Preston saw set' but I can't for the life of me see how it works. (LINK)
PS I note there is a web site devoted to saw sets! Amazing.
Next one?

Sorry Gloria no, but China is on the right track with rabbit poo but not cannon ball! Clue, don't get hooked up on one substance...

No Gloria, it's not metallic, it's of animal origin.

No, it's a bovine hair ball, the equivalent of a smaller fur ball in a cat. :biggrin2:

I kept thinking of owl pellet but couldn't understand why it was so uniform. I wouldn't have guessed it to be made of hair. Is this a common thing in cattle?

I've come across obstructions like being 'wired' China, having a short piece of barbed wire but never a hair ball. I have no doubt they exist. Cows have three stomachs and they hoover up all sorts when they are grazing or grooming, a very common practice.
