That was one helluva good spot...
I'm so glad you were. This prop has vexed me for years, as it seemed like something ordinary, perhaps from the medical field given the enameled white. It's up there with the V2 "mystery chunk" or the Obi emitter, in my opinion.I was very determined
Such a great find. So fun.
There will be when I’m back from vacation next week. Thanks for everyone’s patience!
Ok so ... here’s a thought. When was this scanner idea conceived? I’m inclined to think they would have used parts maybe from snow gear since they were doing cold weather shooting... Like the puzzle piece on the seat and maybe even the hinge thingies on the top of the box? Also reading, I know they used a lot of aircraft parts too.. the part in question looks as if it was used to bring tension to something.. like open / screw tighter / then pop back down ... or the opposite. Flip levers down relieving tension , screw tighter , then pop closed.. one thing that comes to mind is ski hardware or boots or some kind of cable mechanism.. ( which is why I initially though snare drum.. same principle) The mechanical aspects align but the parts do not..
I don’t know.. just food for thought and opening other revenues of ideas for anyone else.
