What Is It? game 243

It's time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog. Put on your thinking cap and figure out what the pictured item is -or just make up something ridiculous!

Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many guesses as you'd like in separate comments. Post no URLs or weblinks, as doing so will forfeit your entry. Two winners: the first correct guess and the funniest (albeit ultimately wrong) guess will win T-shirt from the NeatoShop.

Please write your T-shirt selection alongside your guess. If you don't include a selection, you forfeit the prize, okay? May we suggest the Science T-Shirt, Funny T-Shirt and Artist-Designed T-Shirts?

For additional pictures of this object, check out the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update: the pictured object is an electrical connecting device for neon signs for connecting the luminous tube electrode to an electrical conductor, patent number 2,072,042. The first person who knew that was Tofui, who wins a t-shirt! Although I suppose it could also make a good egg separator. The funniest answer came from ColShorts, who declared it to be The "One Cup At A Time" moonshine still. (Good to the last drop) ;). That's good for a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! Thanks to everyone who played, and thanks to the What Is It blog, where you can find quite a few mystery items every week and the answers on Friday.

It is a part of a WAF "Woman's Acceptance Factor" determination set:
It comprises 10 more or less technically looking items of different size and uselessness to be placed by a man in the living room. There are two values to be determined, the number of items required for the first comment (to remove this stuff), and the number of items required to to get into an argument lasting at least 10 minutes...

The average value may indicate how many strange technical devices a wife may accept in the future such as Computers, PS3, beamers or the like

Its a Neon spring socket.

Neon tubes are fragile and must be fastened to a sign face. You insert the ends into the sign so they are not visible. Once inside, they are greeted by the copper spring.
