Energy/movement transfers from the black things to the silver things.

Not part of a n/reactor.

Another hint: the numbers that are showing are important to it's operation.

No, not a knitting bobbin.

@Mike, you are getting warmer, but it's not a measuring device.

Hint: less than 1,000 were produced total, and a crank turns the center shaft at the top.

It is not an Enigma machine, and isn't an encoder. But that's getting warmer.

And not a ballpoint pen.

Thats an interesting name for it... In dutch its name translate to a 'crownstone', i suppose from when they were still ceramic.

I see there are some going one, but here is one whenever things run dry:

The 'hot shoe' connector/ adaptor from ths bottom of a camera flash unit.

A part of a piece of equipment, but what is that piece of equipment?



Edit: its 1:30 am - off to bed for me - anyone wants to add another photo to keep the game going, and I'll check back in the morning for any guesses on mine.
