I found this little gem at a goodwill in the Seattle area. Might be a diy project, or it could be an early prototype. Has anyone seen one of these before?

Good find in terms of historical gear. It is a CCH Trigger Cam made by Dave Waggoner in the mid/late 80s. CCH made Aliens as well.

I thought the lobes looked familiar, thanks for the input. Here are some ball nuts and other old cams that were in the mix:

The three lobe cam is from Metolius, the four lobe cam on the left is a first or second generation #1 Friend. The other four lobe cam #1/2 is I think by Steve Byrne who started Wired Bliss.

Woah!! Sweet find man. I once found a figure8 belay device for 99cents in the silverware bins at a goodwill.

Skye Swoboda-Colberg, if you ever part with the small four cam unit (with a blue tape) on the right of the fourth photograph, it would be a great addition to the Nuts Museum here in Corsica ;-)

Old climbing gear is certainly something I've never though to look for at goodwill...
