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.

  • no. 928 is easy - it is a fastener for ropes. tighten the bolts and the rope won't move anymore and can be hanged.

  • If anyone has a whatsit, mystery tool, or unidentified object, feel free to click on my profile and send me some photos of it in an email. I'd be happy to take a look at it and possibly include it on this site.
