Glassware Identification Question
« on: June 04, 2012, 05:11:33 PM »
Im trying to find out what this thing is called. Someone donated it and Im trying to get an idea what it is used for. Its relatively lightweight glass but it looked like lab glass. Thank you for any assistance.

Re-sized and embedded.  I don't know the names of these sorts of glassware, and likewise, I'm curious as to what thery're called, and more important, how they're used.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

I'm not saying it is, but it reminds me of a diffusion pump.
