It's an espresso tamper.

You got it, Phinz! It's a Reg Barber, to be specific.

I have a really hard one for you.

What is this display showing? (Yes, that's me for scale) Where is this display?

Hint: You won't find a picture of this particular item online, that I know of, though you will find a website dedicated to the item it represents, and you kind of have to know something about me, my history and my family to really get it.

I'll give a couple of days and then give the answer. If somebody gets it I'll be *amazed,* because you really have to go out of your way to find this, and you wouldn't be there unless that was specifically where you were going. It's not the kind of thing you stumble across in your travels.

It must be the results from your most recent cranial cat scan.

You'd be closer if you said it was a scan of my belly. (and no, that's not a hint as to what it represents.)

I was thinking an explanatory diagram of a light bulb.
