This is one from the old riddles thread. It may not make sense, but the answer is cool. (and no, that's not a hint)

My name states I'm a singular male,
I can have a number, a head, but no tail.
I've also great strength and I can be tough,
But I'll smooth things out when they are rough.
Although I go back to an age now gone,
I'm around today for everyone.

No clue!
A singlular male would be "he" or "him," I guess. The "head but no tail" is a reference to an inanimate object. I'm not really sure where to go from there.

The singular male part should be considered first person, not third person. So I, me, etc..

Hint. The singular male part. It's "I, []"

Yes. However, you should try to figure out what each line of the riddle means. It should be easy now that you know the overall answer.

(i, Ron probably)
I can have a number, a head, but no tail.
(head is maybe the engine?)
I've also great strength and I can be tough,
(well iron is strong so...)
But I'll smooth things out when they are rough.
(polishing probably
Although I go back to an age now gone,
(because it is a mineral)
I'm around today for everyone.
(well... it is around)

Is that right?
