This is the same game that Ferny is playing. This is a macro shot of a common object that you might find in your garage. I do not use the reverse lens setup. I have looked at the description of the reverse lens setup, and ,quite frankly, I consider it very kludgy, difficult to control, and an accident waiting to happen. I use extension tubes which are much cheaper than a lens, attach firmly to the camera and the lens. They are designed for macro work.

If nobody identifies this object in two days, I'll post another clue.

Air pressure gauge? Fiddling around in the garage Cal?

I've got to make these more difficult. Yes, it is a tire pressure gauge. Here are a couple more shots:

That was a toughie calr. I think I've only ever used one once. :lol:
I thought the brass part was used for some sort of adjustment. But I was stumped as to what the item was. http://mindscraps.com/s/otn/happy/icon12.gif
