Found these in an old cabinet.
Any idea what they are ?
One looks almost like an impeller or something.

P.S. I actually know what they are.. But do you ?
Extra points if you can tell me the last time you used them;)

Leo's probably correct, definitely not any impeller, the yellow one almost looks like a dealio for the Tides full batten mainsail system, or from a Star Trek episode in 1966. They look oh so familiar, just can't place it......

Kids today, they don't know nothing.

Adapters for 45 RPM singles. Never used them as I always bought record albums. :)

Not only could kids identify the adapters, they probably don’t know what a 45 RPM record is.

I stopped playing 45s after high school. Had to use adapters back then. Then I got into quality equipment purchased while I was stationed in Japan. Including a direct drive turntable .

So when my youngest was about 8... I was digging through the back of my closet and found some of my old LP's (who remembers what that stands for) and when my daughter saw them she said in wonder.... "Whoa! HOW MANY SONGS DO THOSE HOLD"

When I said "8 on each side" she looked very confused...

Her reference being a CD....:laugh::laugh::laugh:

I think LP meant 'long play'.
I always have to remember when speaking to the younger generations that my references, be it cliches, jokes, history etc, may not mean anything to them.
