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.

    These three are correct.

    >601 Crossbow bolts.

    They are too small for a crossbow.

    >605 The bottom of a round end jointing tool...

    Yes

    >600 wrench for turning threaded rod. or headless bolts, when there is nothing but threads on the bolt

    I don't think this is correct.

    You've got the right idea, but I don't think they're for a mine.

    >well let me say thank you for #600...

    This one is actually a roller cam flare wrench, for more info check the answer page for this set, which I'll post in a day or two.

  • Simply put, #603 is a Boot Jack.
