I came across some items at an estate sale that fascinated me. I started researching and cannot find exactly what they are. It looks like some kind of cover, about 5-by-5-inch square, chrome with a Witte logo molded in the middle, and five bolt holes.
Just another example of swap meet and yard sale picking turning up all sorts of treasures! Keep scouring those sale tables in your free time. What do you think these are from, readers? – Editor
