There are things I see now that seem to be in the wrong sections, and this will definitely change when I introduce other books I have, but it is really good to finally see a lot of these siting next to one another instead of being shoved in drawers, closets, coffee tables, bins, etc. scattered everywhere.
Trying to organize some of my #books (this isn't all) in a way that sort of makes sense. First pic has a shelf of mostly O'Reilly/security/network books, then hippie/futurist/cybernetics/vr, then early 2000s hacking/programming/vintage unix. Second pic is hacker history/new cyberpunk diy followed by infrastructure/internet history/vintage hacker abatement. Third pic is dotcom-boom/computers are bad/how our successful 90s company started, and fiction/vintage comms and radio/electronics repair.

Thanks for the help all, it does seem to be some type of impact driver. Turns out it works fine, I just had to apply pressure to the shank when pulling the trigger!
Anyone know what this #tool is? Motor definitely runs but the end does spin or otherwise move at all. Seems there is a socket in there, but don't know if it is supposed to be. There is a 2-pos switch on the side and both positions run the motor, so I'm guessing some sort of impact driver?
I need to disassemble the business end to see what's going on, but I feel like by owning this I have become a minor character in a dieselpunk story.
Oh hey, I moved and have been busy. Here is a picture of my working on my own analog #catv network using some blonder tongue agile modulators. I also have a QAM modulator and some old analog scrambling gear to mess with. Analog TV is a lot of fun!
