  • What is it?

    Ok, you know the rules, you tell me what it is because I have no idea.
    I found it on the ground outside of a post office. Did it fall off a space
    shuttle, belong to the post office, or what?? It's 2.77" x 2" x .630" with
    a 43 degree angle on one side. It's also very heavy. Looks like stainless
    but is about twice as heavy as brass, a good bit heavier than steel. The
    hole is 9/32" in diameter except at the very bottom it's .265".

    Thanks,
    Ed P

    It's a paperweight, with a built in pen holder.

    Looks like it's made of Kryptonite. Does it make you feel sort of weak and lethargic? It did that to me just looking at it.

        Was there a crashed heli nearby? That would tie it down

          Perhaps it is made of Mallory 3000, which is often used for balancing.

            It's a Corbomite Wedgie.

              Huh. It's the week for finding chopper parts. I found this doodad in a secondhand store several days ago. Cost me a dollar.



              Turns out to be part of the tailrotor linkage for a Bell helicopter, probably a "Huey". No idea how it wound up in a junk shop next to the boxful of old rusty pliers, but hey. Maybe I'll make part of a throttle linkage out of it.

                Thanks Bob!! It never occurred to me to do that. Now all I need do
                is figure out how it ended up at the Post Office. There has been no
                crash so maybe someone was mailing it. Maybe I can sell it on Ebay
                if a new one cost that much!

                  $717? I think you have found a chunk of unobtainium!

                      If it is Mallory , that is very expensive stuff.

                        Some More Info [Maybe]

                        Some more wasting of time because I am retired with nothing else to do produced a weight for this THING.

                        70219-01045-105 7.80 lb

                        They want money to get a picture so that ended the search.

                        Have fun,

                          Counterweight

                          Lockheed's C130's used these as flushweights, incorporated in each aircrafts' toilet seat. Priced accordingly?

                            balance weight for blackhawks (UH-60)
                            Here's a table that describes how to change the weights based on measured vibration

                            couldn't find a picture or diagram.

                              It's an educational widget, throw it away before you become so intelligent that no one can stand to have you around.

                              It looks like a pawl off a pawl pawl machine and if so is very dangerous. It causes people to pawl around and get into all kinds of trouble. Give to to some one you don't like and watch what happens.
                              It's only ink and paper
