Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anybody know what this is ?

    The item, made up of several metal discs, is about 12 inches (30cm) long and is stored in a black case labelled "Electrical Services Division".

    See picture and full story here:-

    Any Tiffs out there or amateur detectives ?
  2. Is it some kind of auger?
  3. Might be part of the kit that that the guys who muck about on high voltage pylons use....

    .....or it could be a Klingon weapon
  4. It's the fuse from a photon torpedoe, most probably from the star ship Enterprize.
  5. Looks a bit like a screw down non return gangle pin.

    I could be wrong.
  6. It's a cam shaft for a Daf Variomatic :lol:
  7. Serious looks like a set of go/no go gauges (to check hole dimensions)

    Or a robotic butt plug.
  8. Do it yourself Tesla Coil? :p
  9. Who would use one of those, WreckerL?
  10. Flux Capacitor?
  11. Me... the robotic thing though 8O

    Had lots of go/no go gauges in my tool box :)
  12. ....calibration doofer for the aforesaid clevy
  13. GET OUT NOW! Don't look back just RUN!!!!!!
  14. As Ballistic has said, they're used by engineers and gunners to prove there is no distortion in gun barrels, pipework or any other type of hole (steady boys, no amplififcation required). Also a quick and easy way to find out a holes general diameter with out using micrometers or vernier calipers.

    Standing by for sexually laden innuendo from the bretheren :D
  15. I thought they were Ninja's medals lined up in his ditty box!!!
