Name That Part: Seven of Mine Edition

The Borg arent so bad, really.
The Borg aren't so bad, really.

In Friday’s Name That Part, our resident Borg, p161911, came up with the answer quite quickly, clearly identifying the brake master cylinder from a 1964 Jaguar E-type. Good for him!
Unfortunately, there were quite a few complaints that it was too easy. While I am trying to mix it up a bit, combining easy questions with harder ones, I’m happy to bow to the popular opinion. As such, I’ll try and find more challenging parts for you in the next few days.
On to today’s Name That Part!
Speaking of “resident Borg”, our thoughts quite naturally turn to Voyager’s Seven of Mine. When she was first added to the cast of the faltering TV series, it seemed like a blatant grab for ratings to try and keep the series alive.
Well, let’s face it, it worked. When I first discovered the new character on the series, it was just as I was reaching that age where I discovered girls, and as such she fell into the position of my first “impossible ideal” girl.
This may have been a bit odd, as the show had been in syndication for years, I was 27, and I had been in a long-term relationship for three years. But hey, I had to figure out that there was another gender at some point. If only they’d had sex-ed classes when I was in school.
Really, that’s just a long way of saying that Jeri Ryan (and her delightful spandex costumes) makes men tingly in their naughty bits.
So here are some naughty bits that may make you tingly in a whole different way!

    Marble counter top. What do I win?

      Nothing, that's granite.

        You're right. I used to cut the stuff.

    Big chunks of copper. Must be pretty close to the battery. Got me.
    Also, I explained last time the P161911 is a gun thing.

      Nope. Borg. Sorry.

      Is it a reference to Para-Ordnance's P16 1911?

      1. P161911 Avatar

        You got it. Para-Ordnance P16 1911. At the time I needed an e-mail address that was what I was shooting in IPSC competition. It is NOT BORG or anything Star Trek for that matter. I'm much more of a Star Wars geek anyways.

    By the looks of them I'm actually thinking contacts or shims of some sort. The oval holes should allow for adjustment when interfaced with whatever the hell they go to.

    Could it be from a Borgward?

      I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who gets tingly when Borgwards are discussed.

    What isn't shown is are the two 12-inch rods, cross piece, and a few nuts and washers that make up the rest of the battery hold down clamp.
    Although mine was of a different design, if you lose part of it or hate it because it is rusted, just use a bungee cord. It worked fine for the six years before I sold the car.
    Actually, this is really hard and I have no idea.

    My parts-guy friend was able to identify the make and model in about ten minutes. If she can do it, I’m
    sure you guys can too.

    They're copper, so they're almost certainly part of an electrical gizmo.
    Notice that both pieces have radii cut into them, like they're on the outside of something round.
    Also take note of the fact that the holes in each are deliberately oblong, meaning they're meant to have some adjustability with respect to whatever's spinning next to them.

      If you click on the image you get a nice HUGE image. If you look at it, you'll see that whatever contacts these parts isn't spinning, but coming in directly from "above" in relation to the pitted surface.

      Or they're cut oblong to hold those pieces in place due to the force of the object they're attached to…

      1. Mike_the_Dog Avatar

        Actually, they're cut oblong because the bolts that hold them in have rounded heads with an oval bit between the threads and head, similar to a carriage bolt.. Also, This particular style of relay was obsoleted ~1978.

          ok, you win.

          1. Mike_the_Dog Avatar

            I've actually rebuilt one of these in a pinch.

    The countertop is granite from Home Depot sitting on Ikea cabinets, probably from the early 2000s. The appliances are most likely stainless steel, as that was the style then. Cookware is probably copper, because people who sank dough in stainless steel appliances are also willing to sink dough in copper cookware.

      Oh, and if Dearthair was 3 years into a long term relationship before he discovered the opposite sex, does that mean his long term relationship was with someone of the same sex?

      1. superbadd75 Avatar

        That raises the question, is 3 years too long to call something "just experimenting"?

        1. JeepyJayhawk Avatar

          If it was a relationship with a member of the opposite sex, what happened for three years? Too much Call of Duty? Hot rod project? How was the relationship discovered? Woke up for breakfast one morning early and found another human cohabitation with him in his apartment?

          1. Deartháir Avatar

            Clearly, you've never been married.

          2. JeepyJayhawk Avatar

            I am actually, but I woke up with a wife and two kids at some point.

      2. Mike_the_Dog Avatar

        Some things are better left without too much examination.

      3. Charles_Barrett Avatar

        Oh, I am so going to sit back and watch how this sub-sub-thread resolves itself…

    2. Mike_the_Dog Avatar

      Probably very true, but I prefer Revere Ware to 100% copper because you get the wonderful heat transfer properties of copper without the patination of all copper pots.

      1. alf Avatar

        Scrubbing with a mixture of lemon juice and coarse salt will clear that right up.

        1. Mike_the_Dog Avatar

          As would a few minutes with a Brillo pad, if I wasn't too lazy to screw with it.

        2. pj134 Avatar

          Buffalo sauce does it in like 10 seconds flat when its hot.
          Wouldn't steel wool scratch copper shit less?

          1. Mike_the_Dog Avatar

            It depends on the gauge of the steel wool, I think. I use it on the copper bottoms of my Revere Ware pots all the time.

      2. iheartstiggie Avatar

        Apparently you and I have the same set.

    3. Deartháir Avatar

      No, no, no… No, no, no.
      Oh, and no, no, and no.
      Good effort, though!

    Is this part of that harem thing I keep hearing about?
