Y6 Day 288, Tensile tester

Y6 Day 288, Tensile tester
October 2015 Scavenger Challenge 9. Search out scientific instruments and apparatus. Hint: you might want to visit your doctor or dentist's office. No home thermometers allowed, but "home testing" kits such as those used by diabetics are permissible.

This rather large machine is used to pull samples of wall paper apart. In principle it is the same as the ones I used for doing weld tests - 2 jaws on a calibrated and recordable scale. Place the item securely in them, push the go button, step back, and watch the magic happen :-}

Interesting machine...never thought about wallpaper having to have a tensile strength, but that makes sense.
