help Identify Mystery object?? 

I have no idea what this is, I took pictures of it, those were the best pictures I was able to take since lots of people were around it, trying to figure out what it is.nobody knows where it came from, it was just there on the floor

what do you think this is? what device does it come from? I have never seen this thing before in anything, have you???

by examining it, theres a big motor, and the thing seem to go back and forth and has cams on it.

any ideas or any clues will help and your help is appreciated. thanks!

its about 50lbs and 3 feet long

It attaches to the flux capacitor....but you need to generate 1.21 gigawatts of electricity to get it going.

its either the caesar 2000


or the caligula platinum







sorry kudo couldnt resist ...are you any closer to finding out what it is ? my best guess something to do with possibly those racing mini carts ? or a gym, whats in the neighborhood that you found it in, mechanic, gym ? amusement park ? some type of repair shop..really ive no idea just "a stab in the dark" sort of speak...if you really need to know search in google images ...type in anything motorized you can think of...eventually you will see something like it

Nah...kudo says it's about 3ft.....pretty small window or pretty big typewriter IMO.

And what is the purpose of the rotating eccentric cams?

As I said, stick it on eBay...

If anybody says "What is it?", you say "It's $250 plus shipping"

cheers,

Ron

PS: Make sure you do NOT ship to Iran or N.Korea or you might just get a visit from the Federal Heavy Squad...

My guess is it opens a hatch in the ceiling oe floor. The threaded shaft pushes and pulls one end and the whole contraption is under something heavy that slides. The cam rollers allow the hatch to travel along them without binding.

Could be a stepper motor. They are used in various, mostly industrial, applications.

RE: help Identify Mystery object?? (in reply to kudo

Does it have a gear to attach a chain, like ones on a motorcycle or something?

Maybe it is one of those things for a garagedoor, or a part of one
