"A metal in the everyday sense"

"your answer implied it."

Glad you're catching on with this sleuthing lark :grin:

Ed, in post #15507, Chris said (not implied) that it was metal.

So it is painted metal? It appears that it is, but sometimes your answers are so cryptic to us Rebels, who knows. . .

Powder coating is a method of painting that evolves charging the paint and the surface to be painted (I think) then after applying the powdered "paint" the item is baked until it is dried or cured or whatever it is called. At least that is how I remember it being done. 8-)

With experts around, I am not going to guarantee that that is how it works at all. :-D

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

I intend that my answers are accurate, just answering what was written rather than what may have been meant - which I could only guess at ;). I wouldn't say NO to paint if I thought it were powder coated if it made no difference to the object.

I think this has painted metal.

Powder coating isn't something I've come across apart from some specific cases, but typically "the point is" it doesn't involve any solvent. Much as you say, - then ending up with a coating of whatever you like, often very thick compared to paint. You can paint evenly-all-over with electrostatic attraction, which may have been done with this.
It makes no difference to your quest though, it could have been any old layer.

Not particularly, though I can think of uses in a Kitchen.

It's close to being a fastener, but you wouldn't call it that.

Hmmm. Time for some Mrs Ball’s methinks. On second thoughts, a Castle.

Is it a clip of some sort?

I like the tomato one, or the chilli one.

Yes you could call it a clip.

Would you normally call it a peg?

Could it be used to keep something closed?

Is this type of item commonly used as a piece of rock climbing equipment?
