I've been looking for some chunks of metal with interesting curves to use to shape sheet metal. There's a local metal scrapyard that has an odd assortment of things coming in every day, and I figured I'd probably find something interesting.

I found this odd thing. I have no clue what it is, but I know that it spins inside that casing.

I also noticed that it has a 1.25" square hole on both ends, which makes it convenient to mount onto a shaft that'll fit into the hardy hole on my steel slab.

The casing comes off, giving me some more edges and angles that I can shape sheet metal around.

The casing itself has some great curves on the inside that'll be useful.

This should satisfy my need for metal for a while.
