Like the fitting on the bottom of a sump pump???? Maybe?
Thanks for the feedback...you guys are like the Fett Detectives. Was hard to judge by screenshots because the beacon light overpowered the actual metal color. Looks like I am painting mine up later.
keep in mind, chances are good that it is a part that originated in the UK, not the US.
For what its worth, this is the closest I have come to finding it. This is a dental handpiece manufactured here and in the UK. I have spoke to the 3 inventors who own the patent and the research and development team of their company. There were only a minimal amount of pieces made because they moved to a newer design and none of the indivduals have one.
The tip did have machined grooves because it served as a high volume extraction tip (HVE).
**Kudos to SS for doing the groundwork on this**

Oh, and if you stick with the dental theme you might come across some pieces that look very close to knee dart launchers

Pretty cool finds so far.
Sweet Jeez! I spent the last 5 days combing through a billion dental tools, and did not stumble across this! :O Mad props Delta! Mad props SS!
Id like to resurect this as we still dont know what the beacon is as far as a found part and maybe a new member here knows exactly what it is or may be able to figure it out with their knowledge.
Do we know if the beacons top is open or closed?
Like the top or the slots? There are two different tops one flat and one with a raised kinda dome on top of a flat top...MOM and AOSW show each one
I read the title as bacon colour (bloudy dislexic)
or your just hungry
I like my bacon brown and crispy! Golden brown bacon might be the color of brass beacons! Now I'm getting hungry!
