Default GTCU 1981

Here is your first clue. Make it quick, I'll be out of electronic range next week so you have exactly 6 days......

The woven stuff is not part of the object.

The first image looks like a countersunk and slightly counterbored hole in a mounting foot. I am guessing that the second image is some kind of ball mount such as a ball head tripod mount.

If this isn't actually a tripod mount, it is probably an articulated clamp of some kind - something like a "third hand" for soldering but for holding heavier objects against more vigorous operations on the work. Judging by the construction of the parts I see, it might be used much like a vise for holding metal while it is being sawn or otherwise cut or filed.

I plan to get something up as soon as I find something. Meanwhile, what sorts of jobs do you use your copy for?
