Found something... weird.

You know, I thought about ways to have a little fun with this. Play a little guessing game after posting a couple pics...





But I decided it would be cruel because there is no way anyone would guess in a million years what I found. Laying in a dusty box no more than 15 feet beside me at work for... ?

Ah heck... take a guess

btw, I noticed at work that the [imgwide] sometimes scrunches images nasty on various monitors. If they looked scrunched, check them on my flickr page (click my sig pic).

Nope, stuck my head out the front door and shot the old building across the street and the lumpy old tree on the lane in front of it.

I used it in this way, though it was not the original design. And yes, its is my K20.

I'll give a hint:

- I work at a reprographics company

Nope, but we do use loupes in the industry. Its an actual lens.

EDIT - hey, creampuff, I just realised you'de edited your answer with the right guess, but after I'd already answered . . . I offer my post-congratulations to you for the guess, haha.

Nope - admittedly, the original design of the thing I found didn't have this feature (t+s). Its not a K-mount, so I had to improvise and the results...

You know, it probably isn't one exactly, but I've never actually seen the old reprographic machine this came from - might be derivative technology.

I'll go post up my picture of it and come back here in a minute.
