What in the heck is it???

Used in the medical profession?


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

My first guess too, or the printing or food industry. Kind of blurry here. Can't really see the gauges. Kind of look like temperature & pressure, maybe.


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

I see three colored tubes(?) that appear to be pink (magenta?), blue (cyan?) and yellow (yellow-green?)

Maybe something that mixes inks /paints?


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

I thought the same thing about the three coloured tubes, but tubes can be different colours to help identify, or keep straight, which liquid is being injected. Notice the three upright syringes and the valves under them, definitely for injecting something.

I can't understand why the pressure gauges though.

You are on the right track Julie. Look at the picture more closely.


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

just bumping up


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

I was going to print that picture out to show at the hardware store but unfortunately I can't get it to print. I think the expensive color ink cartridges I bought what seems just a short while ago needs replaced already. I sure wish there was an easy way to put new ink in dang things.


 o

Used as a culinary device?


 o

No food device.

Good one Chugger.

You are on the right track Julie. Look at the picture more closely.


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

It looks like something Dr. Kevorkian used. I am past due for my final treatment, where can I get one?


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

When I look at it closer, it just gets blurrier.

Instead of mixing, maybe it's for separating something?


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Mixing red + blue = purple.
Mixing red + yellow = orange.
Mixing yellow = blue = green.

Hey Albert, come to Michigan and maybe we can wake up Kevorkian for you.

It is not separating something. I could have posted better pictures but it would have been a dead giveaway because there is something in the picture.

Julie. You are so close. I know it is on the tip of your tongue.

Clue: The machine fills something. Go back and re-read what Chugger posted.


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

It is a photo printer, used for printing out small prints of photos.

Hotmail is not working! What's up with that?


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

It is about 6 inches tall?

Yes


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Use it to hold your bubblegum when you're traveling. Stick your bubblegum on it at bedtime and never again worry about germs, bugs or whatever getting at it while you sleep. Plus it's sharp enough to discourage small animals and scary looking enough to keep cleaning folks from throwing it away(or stealing it) in the morning should you forget to take it with you when you go have breakfast.

Seems to be missing the bug stopper thing but should be an easy fix.

Actually, that's not really it, just what I'd likely use it for.


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

It's old and the Japanese would take it with them while traveling.


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Looks like it folds up to fit in your pocket.
Did they use it to hold some kind of food?


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Being only 6 inches tall and having a pointed end....I would guess the Japanese used it to commit hari-kiri with?

Stick a candle on the end of the spike and adjust it for reading.

If it's used on an aircraft carrier, then I have no idea other than part of the hydraulic ejection system to launch fighters, probably attached under the nose of the jet.

As Jule, said, maybe an aligner device for a telescope. Telescopes will sometimes come with smaller sight scopes attached to them.

Julie got it. It is a telescope collimator used to align the mirror.

Looks like a medical trocar of some type. Something similar to what is used to do an emergency reduction of a pneumothorax

I was thinking water sprinkler adjuster, such as the under ground pop-up kind like on golf courses, but it does not look like any that I've seen, but I'll go with that.

You are correct Kt. It is a sprinkler adjusting tool.

 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Whoever took or made that picture, made all three items from one. If you look closely, they are completely identical, down to the small defects or marks on each one, the only difference is the colour of the little circles which was changed. Photoshopped.

Could be some type of reflectors or light sensors.

Nothing to do with weapons.


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Part of furniture?

It appears that the pieces on the right, with two holes in them, fit into the pieces on the left, in the recessed area as seen in the bottom piece on the left, and the screws go through the holes and hold the whole unit to something.

no furniture invloved

It appears that the pieces on the right, with two holes in them, fit into the pieces on the left, in the recessed area as seen in the bottom piece on the left, and the screws go through the holes and hold the whole unit to something.

No saw and nothing to do with cutting.

Clue: It makes something.

Not a hole punch.

Clue: It makes something, out of something else.

Very funny.

Does it have anything to do with food?


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Movin' on up...


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Nothing to do with food.

I thought everyone would get this one. The one pictured above is a bit different from the ones that I've seen before but it is still recognizable.

This will give it away...Clue: It makes something long.

Kt


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

some sort of stretcher.

Something goes through the four holes. I've seen three holed ones and even five holed ones.

I think three holes ones are the most common.

Clue: It makes something that we all use and probably have in our homes or worksheds.

Kt


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

You may have one in your home but up here we aren't into the s&m stuff.

I have no idea what it is. I finally blew it up to get a better look at it. Is that a chain sprocket?


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

No chain sprocket, that is the whole 'machine'.

I've seen them more up north, but it has nothing to do with the north. What it makes, can be used for many things.

However, what it makes, are made my machines today and not a handcrank machine like the one above.

Kt


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Does it make a rope out of something else, say twine?

J.


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

You are correct! A rope maker. Yes, something out of something else...:)

 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Correct X 2.

Oh, I just ate the last of my ripe Cherokees today. Plants are starting to go down.

This post was edited by kentuck_8b on Tue, Oct 1, 13 at 21:53


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

I wish I had a few Cherokees.

I have a couple Jet Stars which haven't bloomed yet.

A couple Yellow Wild Everglades that I got from Tom(tomncath) in the tomato forum. Tiny but taste good. They're just now starting to ripen.

A BHN 602 that I bought on impulse from Home Depot. Hopefully it won't taste like plastic.

A Brandy Boy that I should have started six weeks earlier than I did. It's only about 1 1/2 inch tall now.

And a mystery tomato growing by the fence under the grapefruit tree. Round, red, maybe an inch diameter. No idea what it is.


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Wow, a lot of tomatoes. I've gotten behind on my gardening.

My Cherokees are mostly red...no purple or brown, yet a few have the darker colours on the top of the tomato. I thought they would all be dark, unless maybe there are different varieties of Cherokees?

Prickly Pear cactus are fruiting now and I've picked some for eating. They are really sweet this year...would be good for making jelly/jam, candy, or even wine.

Interesting unknown tomato that you have. It would be nice to know what it is...maybe a hybrid?


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

Cherokee (Cherokee Red) Tomato maybe?

Yeah, I need to get cool weather stuff in the ground. Cabbage, cauliflower, romaine, etc. I have a lot better luck growing stuff like that than tomatoes.

I've never eaten Prickly Pear, didn't even know you could. Interesting.

My unknown tomato could have come from the grocery. Maybe something I had bought to put in salads. Guess I'll never know. :)


 o
RE: What in the heck is it???

I wasn't sure if there were actually red, brown and purple Cherokee tomatoes. I thought that maybe they were just different names for the same tomato. Thanks for the link.

The leaf of the prickly pear is also edible and quite tasty, depending on how you make it. I like it in salads but cooked, and also the leaves are great grilled, but I don't like removing the skin with all the thorns so I rarely eat them.
