How about...an 'S' fuse adaptor that was slightly butched?

Just the outer shell part of some sort of screw in light bulb base.

Armour from a MIMS cable ?


The product of rotation, excitation and flux produces electricty.

Is this one that has been removed after being installed? The right side of it looks a little rough.

It's a brass "Anti-short" bushing for old armor cable wiring. The following pictures show how it was suppose to be installed.

The only thing wrong here is that I only have a piece of new MC cable and I didn't have a piece of an old armor cable, but you should get the idea.
