A clock? Definitely looks old.

A typewriter key?

Winding mechanism on a toy or a clock... Guessing a clock.

Nope: I'm going with my Dad again... Wind up tape measure!

part of a watch or clock?

This is probably a tape measure.

Reminds me of the casing/cover and handle of an old tape measure for some reason... something about the flip up handle I think. Lovely lighting and detail

I'm guessing its a chalk line. Its one of the better photos in the theme too.

Tape measure turning handle...

Handle for a long rolled up tape measure? Good use of light to enhance the lettering.

It's a winder on an old-fashioned camera, I bet.

luggage latch

Something old

A piece of an old lock? Fishing gear?? Ok, enough with the silly guesses...
Nice image, although I would have liked to see everything in focus in this particular macro. Especially the handle, because that's one of the points the viewers eye is led to.

I say a lock, my husband says a watch..we don't have clue one!!!! Interesting just the same.

It's obviously a weather vane, pointing the direction of the wind in Birmingham
12/21/2009 02:10:44 PM
lock latch?
12/21/2009 01:44:15 PM
A wind switch for kite-surfer ?
12/21/2009 11:41:29 AM
I love old mechanical parts! Not sure what it is exactly, but all those tantalizing, written clues!!!

Measuring tape?
12/21/2009 10:01:46 AM
A clock or watch? No idea what it's part of really. Pretty good macro.

Wind... a piece of a clock?
12/21/2009 06:41:35 AM
Is that an old camera?

Tape measure or chalk line is my guess. Most likely tape measure. Nicely done though - 7
