Answer:

Yes, Danny got it RIGHT! It’s a Magnet. I used to play with it when I was in primary school. I remember I got about 5 to 6 pieces but now only left with 2… Think my mother brought them back from her school and left it for me to play with.

    A piece of wood shaped to jam against the aluminium windows of old days.

  8. 15 laokokok Saturday, December 12, 2009 at 2:20 pm

    NO. The material is not wood.

    I think it is a kind of gauge used to check the distance between two circular wires. Or to keep the two from touching.

    But I keep associating this device with a bicycle or a stringed musical instrument.

    Hi laokokok, care to tell us why the groove, does it serve some purpose?

  16. 25 Victor Koo Tuesday, December 15, 2009 at 1:11 am

    I don’t know if it it was due to the lighting, but in your earlier photos, the object looked like it was made of copper or brass.

    Now most of us know that copper or brass is a non-ferrous material and only ferrous material are magnetic. I guess that was one of the reasons why many of us were misled.

    I’m not too sure what is the actual intended use of the groove. I used to tied a string around the magnet via the groove to hang it on the stand to attract the iron filings in the lab.

    Maybe it’s due to the different brightness and contrast setting of different monitors.
