Found it while rummaging in a scrap bin maybe 20 years or more ago behind Bachan Aerospace, in Windsor, looking for stainless steel for a project doing his best homeless impression.
Bachan apparently made helicopter parts.
This ring is cut from stainless, not aluminum, very nicely machined and heavy.... so I really have no idea. Heck, it could even just be part of the production tooling and not an aviation part at all. Decided we need to try and find out after all this time!

I was thinking the same thing, weight must be a factor or else all the reliefs wouldn't have been cut.
But why stainless? Engine related? That's one strong piece. Looks to me like its a coupling for two tubes to bolt onto.
