Looks like a cylinder in a Wankel Engine.

OK. The patent for the drill bits predates Wankel.


It appears there are other Reuleaux polygons. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reuleaux_triangle

Mesmorizing! As you can see I require very little to be entertained...
Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly.
Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably,
and never regret anything that made you smile.

Women are Angels and when someone breaks our wings we simply continue to fly...on a broomstick. We are flexible like that
