    Lightbulb Anyone recognize this part?

    Weird question but I just found out this part in my driveway:

    Anyone recognize this part?-img_4972-jpg

    Not sure if it came from my car or maybe blown away from some other place and landed in my driveway but thought of asking the experts in case they recognize this.

    Thanks!

    Marcelo

    A good way to drive someone crazy is to leave something like that in his driveway.

    Hmm... Part of the seat mechanism? Can't think of anything else that would have so clean part.

    I thought the same T-Design.. it is too clean to be a piece that is exposed to the elements or the engine itself. It can't be from the seat mechanism either as Would have noticed if anything dropped from the interior of the vehicle so I'm going with someone trying to drive me crazy or the wind Gods trying to play a trick on me... :-D. Thanks everyone for chiming in...

    That looks like a tubing bender. Anyone doing any air conditioning, vending machine service or plumbing in your neighborhood?

    Marcelo. looks like a repair man dropped his tube bending spring die. It is used to prevent small metallic tubing from creasing when manually bending. Often used in appliance repair work and brake lines in cars etc. The tube to be bent is slid inside the spring and the spring prevents the tube from flattening while it is shaped or bent. Once the tube is the shape you require the spring is slid off and the can be further processed with flaring etc. The flared end on the spring is a give away about its intended use. It makes starting the tube into the spring easier.
