It's a tricky one.....

Is it in 2D or 3D? So, are those segments that look like orange pieces raised?

I think it's some sort of rotary cutting head.  A bit of gimping around i.e. extending the straight edges, seems to show that they're in an offset radial pattern.  That is, the straight edges don't point directly towards the axis of rotation.

Here's a new one!

Also, I know it's not the done thing, but I'm posting this and then going away for 2 weeks from the end of this week, so you won't find out until 2009! Anyway....


Like a plum pudding or something?

Not a plum pudding, no.

I know you said fruit but it looks like a congeiled
uncooked peppered ham.

I was saying "hello". I've no idea what the time is with you, or which part of the day....

Closer, but nope.
