What out of the ordinary things do you folks reuse for another purpose?

I have the typical old bathtub (not a claw foot) as a watering trough for the cattle

I cut those blue plastic juice barrels in half with a reciprocating saw to use as smaller water troughs for sheep and goats.

sections of old rubber garden hose are used for insulation corners when installing electric fence.

Cut three inches off the bottoms of old plastic five gallon buckets for feed pans. The upper parts of the bucket are nested together in a long tube and used as drainage pipe

Used fenders from an old sears lawn tractor for the fenders on my small utility trailer.

found a pile of old discarded disc blades and use them for gongs with mu muzzle loader pistols. They are a tough piece to drill holes to accommodate a shackle for hanging them
