We had wood a few weeks ago but now it's METAL's turn to have a go.

Look around you and show us something made from metal.

Great Metal shots - I'm enjoying them all. Especially the "heavy" metal ones.

I LOVE that front gate

This was my driver's side steer tire last night after it blew out on me. I was on I-40 about an hour from home, and I was going about 75mph. Wheee.

Went for a country drive last week and came across this antique metal machinery, but I don't have a clue what it was used for, maybe someone out there might know what it is.
