Sorry no to all of you. Old fashioned and out of date, no call for fasteners like this these days. Another clue. think industrial fastener.

Ah! The Chief engineer got there! Yes Gloria, patent belt fastenings, very dangerous when they got worn, notice how the edge is turned up, that could grab you if you were reaching through the belt.

Looks like the top of a borehole that's been capped off.
Is it Wendy's water supply?

You're very close Kev. It is a capped off borehole but there's a bit more to it than that!

Can't understand why it has a polished top surface. It looks as though it poked up through a floor that has been sanded smooth. So a bore hole into a mill that was later replaced and the space/room made into an office.

That's it, The Kola Super deep borehole. Would you believe over seven and a half miles deep?
Next one?

It's also the origin of yet another myth, one that's circulated on the Internet since 1995. Fake news isn't new and we seem to have a lot of folk about whose brains are still in Medieval times! Well to Hell
