Why not? We've already got *ist DL shots, so bring on the DS shots, too (If Colton says ok )

Fine with me.
Let's try and stick to the *ist series though.
Hopefully more *istD users will chime in.

A magnet and filings of some sort.
Oil pan drain plug?
Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!

Winner! Chicken dinner!

Pretty close.

It is indeed a magnet, with filings.

But it was inside the back rear differential housing on a class 8 semi truck tandem drive that I worked on. They also have magnetic drain plugs, but also a magnet about 1" x 3" glued inside the housing.

The driver tore up the center sections after a few too many miles of abuse, and I got the pleasure of removing the gearsets, cleaning the housings and installing freshly rebuilt gear sets.

When I looked inside the housing after removing the gearset and saw this, I just had to take a picture, so I grabbed my camera and took a few shots.

This is what the drive axle setup looks like:



Big stuff.

Nice work. I've often been a bit intrigued by the *istDS and DS2.

Here's one of my alltime favorite *istD shots. This was shot handheld with a Panagor 55/2.8 macro and an AF360fgz flash (shoe mounted) with a Lumiquest bounce attached.

I think so, but can't be certain.

There were quite a few of them at the Grand Prix this year as part of the Historics day they did.

There's a few more images from the day in here:
Australian Grand Prix 2013 - a set on Flickr

I still have a few other images from the day that I haven't uploaded yet. I really need to get around to doing that.
