What is it?

I've been collecting unusual objects for quite a while, and several years ago I started posting them on this site as puzzles for visitors to figure out what they are. Most of the items are mine but a few belong to others, if you aren't interested in tools there are plenty of other type objects that have also been posted.

For first time visitors I recommend this archive for a wide variety of some of my best pieces.

363. Two prisms, these alone can be used to create a makeshift version of a very amazing device, something that most people are probably not familiar with. The puzzle here is to name the device. Each prism is 1-3/4" long.







364. Thanks to Andy for submitting these photos









365. 3-1/2" long, thanks to Julie for this one





366. A close-up of something that everyone would recognize







367. 2-1/4" long








368. 1-1/2" long, thanks to Elijah for this photo, it's a tool he made for a very specific purpose. What is it and what was it made for?





369. 10-1/2" long
