Here is a macro shot of some of the working parts of an object you need to identify. The younger people in the group might have more trouble than the 40+ group. Post your guess. You don't need to post your age. :lol: As before if no correct guesses in two days, another clue will be posted. Nikon D100, Sigma 28-70mm lens, 20mm extension tube.

Looks like the inside of a pencil sharpener to me(30yr old). Nice pic I think you get a more workable DOF with your method.

Yah, it's a crank operated pencil sharpener. I assumed that most people used electric sharpeners these days and didn't get much opportunity to see the works.

My next two might be harder.

Good Whatsit calr. I was sitting here thinking "I know that thing. Why can't I remember what it is?!". It's been years since I used our one, but I saw it in the garage yesterday. :lol:
I'm even more old fashioned though, I use a small hand one where you have to turn the pencil yourself. :lol:

This particular pencil sharpener is about 25 years old and hasn't been used for about five years. I bought it originally for use in my basement to sharpen pencils used in woodworking projects. Here is another view.
