What is it? Set 364

Page 2 of 2  


    Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always:
2095)    Optical Pyrometer -- for measuring the temperature of things     which are hot enough to glow. I'm absolutely sure of this one.
    Measures by passing current through a wire in the field of view     and adjusting until the wire is the same color (temperature) as     the object under study.
    These days, an IR temperature gun is a lot more convenient. :-)
2096)    If the item is actually calibrated in cm (which is perhaps more     likely, given that "10" instead of "12" is highlighte red, then     it is too small for that -- and is for measuring some shorter     step height. 10 cm is only about 3.937". Perhaps for measuring     the height of heels on women's shoes?
2097)    Hmm ... slip the larger hole on the top over a faucet, stick a     small hose in the smaller hole and it could act as some form of     vacuum pump.
2098)    A bench-mount tool for balancing a tire -- or perhaps a flywheel?
    Marked holes are for balancing weights -- or perhaps for lug-nut     bolts to hold the tire centered?
2099)    Heat exchanger? Vent stove heat through the top pipes (perhaps     it goes in one of the pot holes in the top of a wood-burning     stove). Small hole on side is for feeding water through to heat     it?
2100)    Perhaps a farrier's hammer? Nippers for trimming hoof, blade     for prying up an old horseshoe?
    Now to see what others have suggested (and expect to read more     when I get back home this evening.
    Enjoy,         DoN.
