This is a metal piece that came with a 24" spiral balancer. What is it for as I can't see it with any of your other parts. Thanks, Al

Hey, Al. I'm actually not sure what this is. It appears heavily corroded and damaged, so I can't really recognize it. Do you have another version of this piece that we could look at?
