What is it?

Weew

Answer here this time tomorrow.

Many of you have asked why the popular "What is it?" feature went on hiatus for a while.

I guess I just got tired of it.

But now I'm refreshed with a whole new line-up of strange objects for your mystification and delight.

YEA! What is it, IS BACK!!!!

I use one similar, but it has the tips bent in (about 1 mm).

It is used for holding small objects to position them in awkward areas or to pick up an item that has fallen into the abyss.

You've enlightened me. I knew not the meaning of "the constant defined by Lorenzo Romano Amedeo Carlo Bernadette Avogadro di Quaregna e Cerreto."

Thank you.

Strictly speaking, my posting handle is of Italian derivation. I use the constant defined by Lorenzo Romano Amedeo Carlo Bernadette Avogadro di Quaregna e Cerreto.

Yes, Italians have olives - in abundance. Pickles of the dill, sweet, sour and kosher persuasion - not so much.

Just posting in character.

Like Moleman said, its a grabber...here in hillbilly land, we call them Pickle Grabbers. We ain't got no fancy olives here...what are ya? French?

Grabber device: push plunger to extend four wire "fingers" around any object that fits (*olives*) and release plunger grasping the object.
