We went to a party over Christmas (as you do), and this strange object dropped out of one of the crackers.
No-one has any idea what it is, or what it is supposed to do.

Edit..... it's about 40/45mm diameter, and about 10mm thick. First two pics shows it in a 'closed' position, while the others show it as 'open'.

Any clues? :?
Anyone? :?

I think its a reciprocating dingle arm, design to minimize sinusoidal replenaration in the lunar wainshafts.

There is a need for such a item ?


I need to get out of the house a bit more. I am missing a lot of important things in life.



.
Yes, it's a vital accessory (if you want to hook your purse onto the edge of a table). :ROFL:

It appears to be a retractable piston return-spring anchor to me...

Ok but what does it do ? How do you use it ?




.

If you go to the link and look at some of the other pictures you will see one with the hook hanging down from a shelf and holding a purse strap.

You could use it as a helmet holder.

My wife has a couple of these but they are slightly bigger. She uses them so she does not have to set her purse on the floor of the restaurant or pub. Hers do not have the mirror part but they work just the same.

Dick, The original Rockwell video is great .... here is the text
"For a number of years now work has been proceeding in order to bring perfection to the crudely conceived idea of a transmission that would not only supply inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. Such an instrument is the turbo encabulator.

Now basically, the only new principle involved is that instead of power being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes, it is produced by the modial interaction of magneto-reluctance and capacitive-directance.

The original machine had a baseplate of prefamulated Amulite, surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings were in a direct line with the panametric fan. The latter consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzel vanes so-fitted to the ambifacient lunar wane shaft that side fumbling was effectively prevented.

The main winding was of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots of the stator; every seventh conductor being connected by a non-reversible trem'e pipe to the differential girdlespring on the up-end of the grammes.

The Turbo Encabulator has now reached a high level of development, and is being successfully used in the operation of nofer trunnions. Moreover, whenever a farescent skor motion is required, it may also be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciprocation dingle arm to reduce soinasodial repleneration."
