Guess this SEM

A buddy in Kansai has recently dug up a SEM (scanning electron microscope) in his office and is posting some great pictures to Tumblr:

So, I found the English manual for our SEM, and taught myself how to use it in 30 minutes. Guess what I took a image of this week!

I don’t even have a guess as to what most of these things are. The only one I can really take a stab at is this one, which makes me think of the edge of a rusty razor blade. It’s certainly a wrong guess though.

He’s taking requests of things to SEM. The most interesting request so far is a record groove with needle.
