I also thought so, but "amazing" and "not familiar with" didn't sound right.

Rythm counter? Speed measurment device?

I think it's a sensor you place on your finger, such as one measuring the amount of oxygen in your blood, or perhaps pulse, or blood pressure.

It might be a crude slot cutter, or else a knob.

366. Closeup of corkscrew/bottle opener. 367. Clip-on Pulse Oximeter 368. Some kind of saw for a angle grinder/dremel device--don't recognize the arbor.

From rec.crafts.metalworking:

363 Dunno and can't wait to find out! Would have thought periscope but that hardly seems "amazing"...

364 ?

365 Looks like a capo. The pad looks too short for a guitar so maybe for a banjo or some special purpose for guitar.

366 Cork screw / remover

367 Pulse or O2 sensor to be placed on the finger

368 ?

369 Saw two of those at an auction Saturday but wasn't there when they auctioned them so don't know. Looks like it's to spread something?

363. One set of magic words is "split-image rangefinder". More probably, the OP is thinking of "beam splitter". 364.

365. a *LOUSY* picture of a campo.

366. the rack and pinion section of a lever-handle cork screw.

367. finger pulse-rate monitor

368. at first glance it looks like a home-made drive gear replacement for an electric can-opener, but it can't be that. (the screw-head and rubber grommet would keep the can from contacting the drive gear.) doesn't appear to be a 'slot cutter', the 'teeth' are way too irregular for that. By elimination it has to be a sex aid for when a rhinoceros mates with an elephant. "ele-phino"

369. second lousiest picture of the week. squeezing or crimping tool of some sort
