Default Gadgets -- ??

Your guess?? If you are a woodworker, you may have used one of these. They come in a package of about ten.

No idea what it is, but it looks neat.

It is called a painter's pyramid. You place several of these in strategic locations on your workbench or other work surface. Then you place your work piece (wood or whatever) on top of the points. This allows easy access to the top and sides of the work piece for painting or finishing without the work sticking to the surface. Once the painted/finished surfaces are no longer tacky, you can flip the piece over and do the bottom. I have a set of these and I have used them on several projects.

The pyramids are about two inches high. The flanges with the holes on the base permit tacking them to the bench so they don't move around.

I can see where these would be very helpful in several applications.
