What am I?

I was out with Paul Barr (he of the dubious camera-stabilization technique 🙂 ) and came across a sight that he suggested would make a good “What am I?” Quiz, and I readily agreed.

Continued here... (though, here's a direct link to the answer).

I think these are old cut-off wheels.

Hello,

Looking at your last posts about stones of old temple in the border of the road.
I think this could be some big blade circular saw which where used to cut some too big stones ? (thanks to “nearby photos”)

Have you some news about this old forgotten temple ?

They are “tile” circular saw blades.

I have no idea what that is. However, I was thinking to myself just this morning that it’s been a long time since the last “What am I?” post. Looks like it’s a good one!

Saw blades, diamond usually, for cutting stone.

I would go for a pair of stone cutter circular saws …

Hi Jeffrey, I’m following you now for about a month. (through your blogs ofcourse).
I must say I’m impressed!!
You’re making wonderfull photo’s. And I must say I learned a lot from you.

But regarding the What Am I picture: I think ist a blade for a sawing machine.

Best reagrds and keep going with the good work!

Replace worn blades for cutting stone

It is an old stone (granite) saw.

My first guess is a saw blade.

looks like an old circular sawblade.

Well, it was worth a try, but especially considering the context, I guess it was too easy. (Yes, they’re circular sawblades used for cutting stone.) I’ll try harder next time.
