    What In Sam Hill Are These?

    These were in a pile of photographic equipment that I purchased from a retired photographer.

    Do you know what they are?

    If so, please share.

    Don't be fooled. Just because they came in a load of old photo junk doesn't mean they had anything to do with photography. BTDT.

    They look like pressure thingys from a contact printing frame? Maybe?
    But I agree with Tom, too.

    You don't show the size of them. If they are quite small, they could be clips for holding groundglass in place.

    The pressure springs from a contact printing frame, But then I started looking at them closer and have no idea.

    There is a sure-fire way to find out what they are. Throw them in the garbage and wait at least 2 weeks. Then, you'll figure out what they were and how badly you had been needing them for years. Works every time.
