We’ve gotten some new donations, which have included new Thingamajig fodder.

The following came from the estate of Thomas Matney, M.D. (1928-2010).

Three feet of aluminum

It’s almost three feet long and, although it’s made of aluminum, it’s pretty much cast solid and probably weighs fifty or sixty pounds.

Phil commented that it looked a bit like a race track for Matchbox cars.

From the short end.

It was obviously meant to do something, though; it has to be plugged in, and the box at the end presumably conceals a mechanism of some kind.

If you know what this is, post a comment or drop us a line at the email address at the top of the page.  I will post the official answer next week.
