I thought it'd be fun to post images of items from our youth and see who can name what they are. smile.gif

Here's mine -- what is this object?

"Chestnuts!"-- that's the middle for your 45 records.  However, do I have to actually remember the name for it?  I think I always called it the "thingamadeely" or nothing at all, always wishing I would by one for every single.  But then I started buying British-made imported 45's for all my favorite bands, and those didn't use them.  

 

Let me see what I can drum up today!

Fun game. I didn't want you to think I don't want to play. I'm just having a lapse in creativity and can't think of a good item to offer. 

 

BTW, I knew what that was immediately. We still have a few 45's because DS bought a turntable a couple of years ago. 

 

Hope to come back shortly with an object.

Ah... but what was it *called*?  Or supposed to called, because I never called it anything I can remember....

You proved you knew what it was -- "thingamadeely for 45s" totally counts. lol.gif I think we just called it a 45 adapter -- I'm not sure if there's a proper name for it.
