J Fleury Part

I found this piece of machinery in the trees behind my house in Prince Edward Island, Canada. It has “RAPID EASY, J FLEURY’S SONS, AURORA ONT” on it. I tried the Internet, and discovered a photo of a Rapid Easy grain grinder, but it didn’t look like this. Does anyone know what it is?

The piece you found is a small part of a grain grinder, the part you have comes with roller inside that would hold a belt and the belt would connect to a engine or tractor to make the grinder run. If you are see a picture (you can find one at artefacts canada website) then you'll see it is a broken off piece on the right hand side. Good luck. I found a complete grinder at a really old good farm yard it is in really good shape and i just cannot find any info on the internet about it either or it's value or rarity.
