Apologies all around for the delay of my game playing duties. Good guesses yet not the thing this is.

It is not steel but I can see how the shine might lead you to that impression.

It's not suitable for curtain rods and sliding doors, and you most definitely would not want to cook anything on, with or near them.

Although, literarily speaking, the substance they are made of might be associated with a fellow who enjoys mid-day snack parties.

OK, I'm going in left field on this one. When I was a kid in the Netherlands, I used to enjoy a particular snack that many find disgusting....

Licorice?

If not that, than rubber molding for glass windows....which I did NOT eat as a kid!

I've never understood what people find so disgusting about black licorice, but then more for us right ? That being said, it is not licorice nor should it be eaten at all, ever.

It is also not made of rubber.

its not the texture its the taste.

I like all kinds of similar candy, but i hate black licorice.

And cough candy (the hot red boil sweets)

I get the impression they are made out of a light compressed-foam-like material and are not actually silver but meant to look like wood (brown). The lighting merely looks them look like metals.

Denyflatulence and Biigs were nearest the answer with their first guesses.

This is not foam, plastic or wood.

Stained glass is exactly what this is used for but this is not the copper tape used for foiling.

You are so very close.

This is used for stained glass, exactly correct but not for the foil method. The foil method uses copper foil tape and this is not made from copper.

Yes Indeed MrLimpet, lead came it is.

Most have seen this but not usually off the glass so to speak.

Great guessing everyone. I pass the torch to you.

YAY!

Have to admit I would have never guessed without the clue's you gave.

Ok ~ here goes.

Believe it or not, this thing has a name. Anyone who has had the unfortunate experience of running across one these ~ should know what it is.

However, we didn't know for about a year. We referred to it as WT* is that!!!!!
