      It's a left hand version of one of these.

        LOL... You guys.

        Looks like a motor with an adjustable belt tension mount. (Like those found on drill presses.) The front motor mount and the shaft is missing though.

            Well, whatever they are the two of them make a set and have to be worth a whole lot more

                If you had the other two, you'd have a full set of three!

                    It's just a little hard disk motor. When I say little, I mean little:



                    1979 IBM RLL Hard disk
                    Size: 12" x 12" x 20" 50 pounds.
                    Capacity: 64.5 MB.

                    And here is today....

                    2004 Hitachi SATA Hard disk
                    Size: 3.5" x 5" x 1" 30oz
                    Capacity: 400 GB

                    One of these drives is over 100 times faster, and is equivalent to a stack of the IBM drives 79 feet high by 79 feet wide:

                        This one is actually the first "hard disk" with thin-film magnetic heads.

                        Do you know what the model number is for the one you have?

                          3ph,that motor must have SOME use.i assume it's fairly high speed,so how about a mini grinder?
                          alternatively,an anchor for a model boat?

                            Hah. Want mini motors? I have a bunch of these but have never figured out a use for them yet. That is a .22 long rifle round for size.

                              Geeminy....I remember when adapting a 5mb HD to your SWTPC 6809 system was pretty high tech, and who would ever use up THAT MUCH storage?

                              The SWTPC had 64K memory space, with hardware memory paging of several of those spaces on the processor board. I still have a SWTPC 6800 in storage, and a 6809 board that would fit it.......
