I had some troubles at the time and I was running Opera 12. Been using
Opera 12 builds for maybe a year now, too lazy to figure out exactly...
At the time it seemed to clear up when I forced/downloaded the
latest browser.js update, but I think now that was just a coincidence.
In looking over the latest browser.js there is no mention in it for
either photobucket or blogspot. It was screwed up for maybe a two week
period for me. Not quite long enough for me to dig into it seriously ;-)
Thanks for the tip that Photobucket was definitely messing around
with their code at the time.
2856 At first glance, I thought this looked like a gear-puller, and a
nice one with adjustable length of pull. But, then, I noticed the puny
little thumbscrew. All the gear-pullers I'd ever seen have some
provision to provide substantial pulling force or torque. For example,
a big knob, a hex-head for a wrench, or a rod through the head. The
thumbscrew is not chewed up, as it would be if an open-end wrench were
used on it. I thought this must be something other than a simple

commonly rusted or jammed on.

It might be a pulley puller -- or a fan blade puller -- both of
which normally need lower forces. The thumbscrew looks like about
1-4/20, so it is for fairly small hub devices scaling up from that.
I believe a ball of ice 6" in diameter would weigh about 4 pounds. One
might manage a chunk that size with these. Here's something similar:
That seems to be a common design, similar to the mystery item but for
the handles. The chain handle would make it easy to carry for a
distance, but the scissors handles would make it easy to grab ice with
Rob I think item 2855 was made/used to find the exact same point on two
sides of an object. I'm sure I've seen one elsewhere, just can't place
it. It wold definitely be carpenter type accuracy, not machinist.
