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.

  • 714 reminds me of a weight used in old fashioned scales.

    It does look like one but it's used for something else. I bought it from a guy selling a lot of machinist's tools.
