look what i dug up

Post  fc59 on Fri 20 Dec 2013, 11:25 pm

at home we have been upgrading the power box so i can run 15 amp power in the garage mostly for a welder

in doing so i need to run new cables into the garage this meaning i needed to dig a trench accross the lawn  ds 

while digging the trench i hit this





from what i can tell its an old brake drum it was about 200 300 mm under the lawn and the lawn is still at its original height from the build date back in the 60s

so what have you found while digging ?

that a fantastic collection/find id fill them with some coloured water and put them on a window sill in the sun  sunny 
its funny that you mentioned kava i noticed that they are selling it in bottle shops now ever thing old is new
but thats the good thing about glass it dose not rust but i don't think it would have been as forgiving with a direct blow to it with an axe like the brake drum was mind you it took a good chunk out of the axe face

i cleaned the drum up a bit there isnt enough to tell what it was off and i have half buried it next to the old porky pig fire and the concrete FJ pot plant

I must say it is amazing what one finds when digging in their own Backyard Dean.

As long as there are no Bodies all is good.  lmao2

Deano certainly gets serious when he's digging a Hole!  lol!   Quite a nice little Goldmine.  whatsdownthere

Very funny stuff.... Laughing Laughing 

Too far a walk from the house tho for a hills hoist!

The story goes..... We plant trees every year so Dno was walking around with the shovel looking for spots to put trees and there has always been a dip in that spot so always the digger Dno put his shovel under a rock and prized it out. Then went to do the next rock and it disappeared and went 'sploosh' and then the dirt started to sink so he got off quick smart. After a bit more of a prod the rest fell in and we were left with this.



Then after a bit of digging.... this



There is a few wells close by and they are all circular. We are not far as the crow flys from old mining area so we are thinking it might be a mine shaft. Weird shape - bath tub shape. Anyone have any ideas?? We are down about 4/5 meters now and the walls are chipped and have foot holes around it so they could climb out. Strange. Bottles are around 1920's so far - pity they were not older! The PVC we put down and jiggled as far as we could, it is 5m and seems to have hit the bottom so might not be that exciting.

hard to say
but as i remember from a school trip miners were a superstitious bunch different miners dug different shaped tunnels and holes some be leaved that digging with out corners was good luck because demons live in the corners when its just good engineering

If you hadn't said anything about mines I would have suggested a well. Especially if it stopped at that depth. If you have hit the bottom check the sides they might have turned and dug across.
