Welcome Fooites!

A simple gizmo [images14.fotki.com] for this weeks quiz! All that's needed to win is the name and specific application of this gizmo.

Everyone can play and this week we're offering free parking [images.net3media.com] to everyone that takes the plunge [allfunnypictures.com] and joins in (you know you really want to....).

Darn, yet another Gizmo quiz goes by where "strings gizmo2-vi.jpg" reveals no useful meta-data.

OK, there's an adjustable blade, and a quick-mount jack to insert it into something that holds it. Wear and tear indicates that it is old, look indicates the same. Who uses old machinery? Agriculture or clothing. Looks like something to slice things, and if I am right in thinking there's a couple of those mounted to somethign so that multiple slices can be done simultaneously.

Probably cutting fabric? Huge rolls of fabric get cut into smaller columns?

Gues it's something to make portions out of a stream of - e.g. thick syrup or dough. Am I right in thinking it's rotating? From the food industry?

Ha, I thought the end of the old version gizmo looked like the end of a bit that fits into a brace.

Must be used for sharpening the ends of pikes. :)

Not used to sharpen weapons or other items intended to inflict bodily harm....

This guy [images14.fotki.com] probably has used or knows how to use one...

Hey, gotta go [jokefrog.com] - will check back in about a half hour or so. Need to go up to my shop and service a couple of generators - 4 hurricanes approaching starting next week.......
