Earlier this year I came into some various aircraft gauges and asked Oppo for some advice on what to do with them. Besides an altimeter currently sitting on my desk as a conversation piece, I still haven’t gotten around to doing anything cool with them. Now another bit of aircraft has come to me and is currently on my desk for me to fidget with.

This is a titanium turbine compressor blade taken out of a Pratt & Whitney F-100 jet engine. This one specifically was taken out of an F-16 after some slight impact damage to the compressor blades.

My office is full of random stuff like this. I should start charging my co-workers admission :)
