    yup you might have a few dollars there for sure. clean them up and give them a good coat of paint. try letting them soak in a bucket of deisel for a few days them wire brush them then soak them again til they are nice and clean.after that put them on ebay.as for scrapping them you might be able too if they aren't hotmost stuff thats been used for drillin is hot scrap yards won't touch it. to bad they wasn't diamond tip bits.

    they are about 30lbs each
    look to be a crusher or grinding attachment for something.

    If if you know what they are can you let me know wether to clean them up and sell them or take them to the scrap yard, or make a fancy anchor.
    thaks to all of you that can help me.

    These bits look to be in bad shape but don't be too quick to scrap. There are people who buy and re-tip them.

    Could it be used for drilling with these home made drilling machines that guys on many forums (maybe here too) are looking for plans??
    No, too big and would take a lot of power.

    If i had found that i would have think i struck gold, I would have cleaned it (shot blasting, ultrasonic etc...), obviously i'm not from a drilling area.

    Is it the type of drill bit howard hughes patented when he was 19 years old for his father drilling exploitations ?

    They are tri-cone drill heads for rock, they worth something to the right person. I believe there is a company that buys / refurbishes them as long as they are not too bad, you just have to look around on Google
