its obviously part of an aircraft and it is made of a strange material(hint it is made from a rare earth metal)



cant even imagine how much this one thing cost let alone what goes in it

That is part of the F-22 inertial dampener system.

It's made of unobtanium.

I cheated and used Goggle image search. First two results, "office ruler."

The color looks like Titanium.a reply to: penroc3

CHEATER LOL

its no wonder some parts cost so much money, and in the pic you can tell it was damaged some how at the top of the threading and a few other chunks missing

Top me it looks like Tungsten. Perhaps an injector (puck) unit for a high performance engine needed to prevent heat over stress and malformation.

Cheers,

my guess.

It is a high-performance, self-sealing aircraft toilet valve that is capable of withstanding a direct hit by a 30-mm high explosive projectile.

Hey man, we can't expect Air Force 1 to have to land because the high command can't do #2.

just a guess,looks like it might be a turbo fan coupling.

Waits for Zaph to turn up and be able to give a full rundown including the name of the person who made it and what they had for breakfast that day.

Does look like something to do with oils so probably the metal will either be mixed to prevent rust/corrosion and stand higher than usual pressure compared to a civilian version which would weigh twice as much but cost only a 10th the price.

it is part of a laser gyro housing made out of beryllium

It's part of a pump. If I didn't know better, I'd say part of the hydraulic system on a CSD.

it is said to be part of a laser gyro and made from beryllium


but looking at it closer you can see some sort of residue that might be left from a hydraulic system

It’s a discombobulater.

It looks like fine or super fine thread on the bottom of the fitting, therefore what you say makes sense if its running 3000-5000psi. Those saw tooth notches at the top on the inner ring remind me of quick disconnect fittings on hydraulic supply lines. According to the scale its approx 2.5" in diameter which would be bang on what I would expect for some hydraulic components in a large aircraft. I've handled ring gyros before but dont recall them looking like that. I would like to find out for sure though.

I've seen ring gyros in place never broken down to parts

what ever its for the material choice is interesting, it would be VERY light and relatively strong, however it might react with various fluids or chemical vapors


ring gyros surprisingly don't look super scifi.

imagine the old gyros in atlas missiles
