The picture is on google photos. As you know, this forum has no way to directly attach a photo.

I had to Google it, since I've never really known what it's really called. Lansky lists it as a "multi-angle knife clamp".

Fingers crossed.......

You win! But I find lansky's description odd. I would call it a rod guide clamp.

I should have found something harder.

It was harder than it seemed.  I wasn't positive at all that my initial answer was correct.  I did have to do some Google-Fu.

Guess it's my turn again....hmmmm.  How about this?

First thing I found here at work.  Looks like it is living up to the thread title.   :icon_lol:

Guess I should add a hint.  It's used in a PC.

Now that I think of it, I should probably have put something next to it for scale.  :hithead:

The dimensions are 4.75" X 4" x .5".  It is used to adapt a smaller item to fit where it's larger (and most times slower) counterpart is installed.

You got it!!

To be specific, it is a SSD adapter.

You answered right as I was posting more detail.

Guessing its a tool for locking a clutch basket or a splined shaft/hub or a timing pulley

Looks like the toothed insert is removable so maybe it comes as a kit that will fit several different spline profiles or diameters?

You got it!

Specifically it’s for holding the clutch basket on a Suzuki GS1000 but like you said the spline part can be swapped out for other tooth profiles. Good work.

I keep coming in and out of this forum these days.  Too bad, I recognized this basically instantly.

I'm glad to see this game is getting some participation, it was quite interesting back in the day.
Just waiting on sledge now.
