What is this tool for?

Can anyone tell me what this tool is for?   I came across it all rusted and thought it was some type of pliers or cutter. After I cleaned it up I could tell it was probably neither. What I thought was a plier jaw is actually one piece and does not close and what i thought maybe the cutting blade, actually had lines and numbers, like a ruler. The one small screw that the spring is attached to, will allow you to adjust how far the jaw/cutter will close and the other screw, when loosened a bit allows you to slide the little metal 'arm' in or out, like a measuring template. It has some fancy designs on the handles as you can see and the only marking says "Made in Western Germany".

Looking for someone to identify this object? Answered

Recieved this item as a challenge to figure out what it is. The drill bit in the picture comes out of the end of the tool and the tool itself has three adjustable jaws that are sharp at one end.  The only other interesting marking is the drill bit has a hole drilled in the end of it.

Identification needed!

Hi there, I'm messing around with a cheap Chinese camera I got a while back and was looking to replace the rather poor camera with a nicer, clearer one. I'm a complete newbie at doing this as this is as far as I can get!! It seems there is a clip in camera for the circuit board but now I have no idea how to search for another compatible one to buy online. I've typed in 'camera circuit board replacement' and 'clip in camera part' etc. etc. but to no avail. Here are some also rather poor images of the camera in question but hopefully it's enough for someone to point me in the right direction of another replacement module that would snap in and work! Thanks! Josh

Help Identifying unknown Transformer

Hello I got this transformer from an old ups, there are four wires on the primary side black, blue, green , yellow and two on the secondary red and blue. This transformer used to charge 12v 7.5ah battery also converts it back to 220V in backup mode. Tried testing its output and got this (Mains 220V) Black to ground Blue to mains-> 7.9v on secondary Green->5.5v Yellow->6.5v Connecting Blue and Green to mains and it was a shot circuit and blown my fuse. I want to use this for making a decent power supply 12v+ output, is this possible? I also saw this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mc4GZM-kFUY&hd=1 The guy is using his ups transformer for generating hv to power cfl using tip122, i am not sure how to do this using my transformer. I need to make use of this transformer somehow, otherwise its just eating dust at my home.

Can anyone help me identify this plant, please? Answered

Found in my new Community Garden plot, among the weeds that had sprung up over the winter. I was going to pull it, but then it starting looking to me like it might be a desirable garden plant. A few clues:garden is in Seattle, WA; in a Temperate Rainforest climate.raised bed garden, filled with a none-too-rich commercial compost, built on top of native soil composed of equal parts clay & glacial till.this plant or its seed survived an unusually long hard freeze (for this area) this last winter, 12 days of temps ranging from 10-20 F.discoloration on leaves is probably Leaf Miner damage, of which our community gardens have a minor plague.just before deciding that it might not be a weed, I discovered that it has a thick white taproot that extends well below the 4 inches or so that I'd dug out.Thanks for any help you can offer.

What is this weird reamer?

So I found this in the shop the other day. It looks like a normal reamer but it's not round. Four flutes extend to a larger diameter while four extend to a shorter diameter. The shorter flutes are sharpened just like the outer ones so they were clearly designed to cut something, even though they appear to have no clearance with which to do so. The tool has a keyed taper meaning it was intended for use in a heavy machine. The dimple in the tip of the tool does not go through the tool body.  Can anyone identify this weird tool? None of the professors or machinists I have shown it to have any idea what it is.

Looking for Info On These CNC Motors For Replacement

I purchased a surplus 2-axis CNC machine with built by Yamaha. I hoped to rebuild it into a new machine for myself, but it ended up requiring 200 volts AC for the controller and motors, which I don't have access to. I sold off the controller already. I don't know too much about professional CNC macahines, hoping someone has some input. I am hoping to replace the motors with ones in the same form-factor that run on DC or 120v AC(if such thing exists), preferably stepper type. I do not know what form-factor/package/mounting style to look for, or even if any are available with the power requirements I want.  Motors are the same for both axis and are part#: TS2620N664E122, attached are some pictures.

It is 6" long and made of metal (I think it is brass) and is kind of heavy in my hand. The tip on the smaller end of it unscrews at the narrowest point and reveals a hollow shaft. Thx for your input!

This is on an adjustable length cane, where this thing can be pushed into the inside of the tube to adjust length of the cane, and pushed out by a spring with a "click" sound to lock the length. This is also on kayak paddles to select and lock the angle of the paddles. In fact, this is fairly common and used in many other places... But I don't know its name.

How can I identify what kind of resistors I have? Answered

Recently I have been trying to identify and categorise all my scavenged electronic components. I know how to identify the values and tolerances of the resistors by using the colour bands, but some of the resistors have different 'body' colours. I know the standard beige/brown ones are carbon film and metal film resistors are often blue. But I have some other colours, which I would guess are also metal film-but I don't know, they are all shown and labelled in the picture. Let me know if you think you know what they all are. From left to right: 1st is a standard carbon film 2nd I'm sure is a metal film resistor 3rd: ??its a slightly greeny aqua colour 4,5,6,7th:??? these are a torqoise green type colour 8th: ??? this is lime green

Hello everyone,                             I was opening up a pair of  old piezo buzzers and found these inside(attached picture).Dunno what they are nor what they do but when I opened up a relatively new buzzer,I found that this has been replaced by a 470 ohm resistor.The rest of the circuit remains the same which include a few resistors,a BC 547 NPN transistor and a speaker.The observation is that the old buzzer produces a much louder noise than these new ones with the same volts and amps...Given all that,anybody seen 'em before?

Is this a capacitor? What kind? (Sunpak flash/speedlight circuit for Nikon cameras)

UPDATE: I received one response (on the Strobist forum) saying this _is_ a capacitor, and I must desolder to measure capacitance.  I hope someone here can confirm this, and, if true, also help me figure out _what type_ and its likely _voltage rating_. ========================== This circuit board is from a Sunpak NE-2D dedicated module for Nikon cameras.  Can anyone help me identify the rectangular component with blue sides?   I can't find any markings on it. High res. pictures of the part and the board are linked below.  The capacitance tested around 47nF (still soldered in place).  I'm fairly new to electronics, so I don't know if I did the test right or even the right test.  If it is a capacitor, I'd like to know what type. (FYI: A dedicated module is a removable foot that attaches to various Sunpak flash units. The foot/module connects to the hot shoe connector of specific cameras.  This particular module is dedicated to older Nikon SLR cameras. It allows compatible Sunpak flash units to provide Nikon-specific TTL flash functions (Fire/X-sync, Quench, Ready light, etc.). ) Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Can you help me identify an old film reel? Answered

I recently came into posession of an old 8mm Kodak Brownie, which has about 28 feet of film shot on reversal film.  Various clues of stuff in the camera box believe me to think it would have been used in 1959 or 1960.  I went ahead and used the other 23 feet of film, and am in the process of trying to find a place to develop it.  One such place told me to look at the end of the reel for something to help identify it.  I came up with KMA 0-683073503 dot-matrix stenciled into the last few inches of film.  Anyone out there know what this actually means?

Help me identify this spider?

OK so, tonight I was getting out of the shower when I saw what looked like a little bit of red string dangling in the air. I inspected closer and found out it was some kind of spider! It kinda just dangled there on what seemed like one thread of web from the ceiling about 1-2 feet from the floor. After blowing on it to conjure some sort of reaction, nothing happened. It just slowly swung without moving. So seeing as it was dead, I grabbed the stand of web a small distance ahead of it and dropped it into the sink. As soon as it touched the sink, it sprang to life being the sissy I am I filled the sink with water and let it be sucked into its watery grave. Here's my description, I'll post pics tomorrow. It was a deep red color, I'd say almost burgundy. I found it in my bathroom in Phoenix, Arizona As for it's size, I'd say it was relatively small, maybe the size of a nickel at the largest. Remembering back from learning about insects in fourth grade, because it was a reddish color I deducted it could be venomous, but I doubt it.
