Among the options:

  • Paperweight
  • Something that "fell off the back of a lorry"
  • Congeminating sproggle

The equipment manufacturer certainly can. However it is impossible to tell where it came from and the manufacturer's telephone number at this distance, and these certainly are not on the drawing supplied to the forum.

Is there a prize for getting it right?

Can you give us some context? What size is it, where is it used, any clues?

I think it's just a drawing to show how drawings should be done.

Items 4 and 10 are labelled separately: but if 4 is threaded in the lower section, how do you screw it in without damaging the upper threads for 10? I suppose it could be glued in place.

Why aren't the dimensions filled in?

Where is the list of items?

I can see how 5 provides an "end stop" for 6, but, the way it's drawn it cannot lock it in place.

What could 6 be for?

What could 8 be for?

Why is the centre line "A" labelled at top and bottom?

Why is the item 10 labelled in the "outer side" drawing?

"Why is the centre line "A" labelled at top and bottom?" - To indicate the section view right beside it.

The letter "A" at both ends of the line represents a plane that cuts thru the part, the resulting view is shown and named "SECTION A-A". Section views are used to show interior part features that are hidden from regular views.

10 might be a way of setting the height/depth of 4.

8 might be a shear pin that breaks in case of an overload.

Where is the detail on the six holes around the periphery? Only their centre-lines are shown. If this is a drawing intending to show how such drawings should be done, it has omitted this info which should have been included in the sectional view. If the peripheral holes are chamfered, in the isometric view those holes are drawn incorrectly.

It is a whosis spindle.

It's a notta my spindle, whosis spindle. As shown, the wet noodle hook is engaged, so no wet noodle spindling will take place.

I would volunteer another answer, but then you tell me its a minda you business.

Does it attach to something, or just sit on a desk somewhere. What environment was it found in, a foundry, or a lostdry.

It looks like a quick release bobbin. Rotating Hook 6 CCW releases Pin 10 so that Endcap 3 can be lifted off so that wound material can be lifted off, or feedstock placed, on Shaft 2. Base 1 is driven by an unseen CW motor, and provides power to 2 via locating/shear Pin 8. Holes 7 are to see the quantity of material in the bobbin.

Such an arrangement would allow for quick removal/placement of materials as well changing shafts for different bobbin heights.
