I found this on the floor of my garage shop.

Next to my Unisaw…....(which I built all the surface areas, extensions and legs for,,,,,,,,so I don’t think it came from the saw),

It was also kinda laying between my big Delta Dust Collector and the saw and my router table, (which I built also.

I have absolutely no idea as to what it is or how it got on the floor in the middle of my garage shop.

And I don’t want to chuck it cuz 2 days later I will find out it is a critical part of something.

I am kinda nervous that it vibrated loose from one of my machines and I want to be careful.

It is about 3 1/2×3 1/2 inches by a 1/4 inch (strong) thick.

Cast pot metal.

Anybody ?????

Try looking in your equipment manuals for an exploded parts diagram. You may be able to identify it there.

“Muffler bearing for an overhead rotary girder”

Now that’s just silly. Everyone knows that overhead rotary girders don’t use bearings on their mufflers. They use sleeve valves!

Could be part of a ratchet clamp.

Just saw how big it is. I’d sure find out what it is from before I use any of my equipment.

Unless there are some wear marks or signs of usage on it, which I can not see in these pictures, it does not
look as though it was on a machine and came off. Of course I have been wrong before. I think it is just a
spare part the shop gremlins dropped to confuse you.

Get a look up inside the saw cabinet. Might be some sort of spacer that hangs with the open end in a downward fashion? Somehow it got “bumped” up and fell out maybe?

Base plate from a Retroencabulator.
It made of pre-famulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings ran in a direct line with the panametric fan when installed.

I have a sister in law who has a fascination with keys she absolutely must know what each one goes to. Any time I have one I no longer need I leave it somewhere in her house without telling her. It drives her freaking nuts. Maybe you had a sinister visitor.
