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.

  • 563, Fire Grenade. Glass, filled with carbon tetrachoride to displace oxygen. Usually mounted in a spring loaded contraption that has a melt-link like a sprinkler head that will break the glass but can be hand thrown.

  • 564, Saw kerf set, used to bend hand saw teeth to the left or right so the saw kerf (cut) will be wider than the blade to prevent binding.
