(Yes, it's crap quality, a better one will be uploaded soon.)

The back wheel hits 100mph with no load on the bike.

Tube Tester



This is a tube tester. More specifically, it's an EICO model 625. It hasn't been tested as of yet, but it looks to be in good working condition. This will definatly help to test the bucket of tubes lying around.

Senocore ss137


This is a picture of the Senocore ss137. It is essentially a TV tester. With the throwaway culture of modern life, we've got more TV's than time to spend time fixing them, but I'm sure that a use will be found for this piece of equipment or its components.

Electrosurgical Generator: Cameron Miller 255

Here's a weird one:

This is a picture of a Cameron-Miller 255, an electrosurgical generator. It is used for different kinds of surgery, including cutting and cauterization. It accomplishes this by heating up the tissue between the electrodes with current, in the range of 0-100 watts. It's pretty easy to tell that this was made a while back because it is constructed from more modern ones, but the label was removed and a quick search reveals no results.

There might be some useful parts inside which could be reused, but I think it is best left off until someone figures out a use for it. Any ideas?
