#341: Arrowhead

My first thought was a fishing arrow head, but after looking at it, I can't imagine how it would work . What kind of arrowhead do you think it is? Sam

If I remember correctly they're used for small game and bird hunting. A direct hit will kill or stun a small animal while the outspread tines will hang the arrow up in the tall grass in case of a miss making the arrow easier to retrieve.

It is called a Judo head. It is used for birds and small animals.

O.K. Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking again:
339) It looks as though it is a tool for removing/installing (unscrewing/screwing in) 5C collets in a CNC lathe. (Except that I'm not sure why the other three slots.)
340) Part of a latch for webbing belts. The two springs on the sides hold the teeth lightly engaged, and the hooks below grip more firmly when it is under load. (I think.)
341) Driver for flexible abrasive disks, perhaps? The springs keep the flexible surface in contact with the workpiece?
342) A puzzle?
343) *This* one, I am sure about. It is a lock-out plate, used for lockable power switches to allow multiple people working on a piece of powered equipment to be sure that the power is off. Each worker puts his own personal lock through one of the six holes, and any one of the six is sufficient to keep the horns of the ring engaged with the locking mechanism of the power switch (called the "disconnect"). It is a safety tool.
344) An old fishing reel, of the design used before the "spinning" reel came into use.
Enjoy, DoN.

A little tougher this week, Rob.
339. No clue 340. Can opener thingamabob. 341. No clue 342. Metal anechoic chamber walls. 343. Lockout device for electrical panels. Allows the master switch to be locked in OFF position. Allows multiple locks to be inserted to allow multiple parties to be performing maintenance on the machinery fed by the panel at the same time. 344. Open faced fishing reel.

It is for hanging things, but I'm looking for a more specific answer.

Partial credit, it is a hook, not used with a door but on a specific type of wall.

I'm guessing that a Judo head is the same as mine but made by a different company.

A brick wall. It is inserted into the mortar gap with the teeth biting into the lower brick and the "batwings" pressing against the upper brick to keep it in place.

It is used on a bricked wall. The teeth and two wide spread 'antlers' are used as a compression fit in the horizontal mortar line. The two curvved hooks are then used as the hanger for ... whatever.
