  2. Alan Parekh Says:

    By looking at the responses I would say you are right!

  3. Mike Says:

    It sure is. I have some ideas but haven’t found it. I can make out a few words on the crank but not enough to identify it.

  4. Almost_There Says:

    Looks really well made, what ever it is.

  5. Almost_There Says:

    I don’t know what it is, but I know what it isn’t…

    It definitely isn’t cheap!

    (Oh, sorry, that was last week’s question.)

    Hehe… Are you going to keep us waiting much longer?
    I’m extremely curious to know what the heck that is… as are most of us who couldn’t guess, I think 🙂
    Since the contest is over… The colouring suggests it was made by Nikon (like some of their earlier microscopes)… but other than that I haven’t the foggiest.

  8. RSKueffner Says:

    Gyroscope for a boat, as in a sea compass, or something or another?

  9. Alan Parekh Says:

    Winner announced.

    Sorry for the delay.

  10. Almost_There Says:

    Wow! If I were to guess 1000 times, I never would have guessed that!

    It makes sense once I read the description of how it works.
