    The MFR number looks like what we call a cage code. The company listed for
    the cage code 32946 is a company called
    500 SHERMAN ST
    GALION OH   44833-2031
    You might want to give them a call and ask for someone in sales. Ask if
    they've made things for rockets or satellites or the material you found. A
    mechanical engineer said he thought they made heavy machinery so it may not
    be the source of the material you found, but it's worth a try.
    Another thought is perhaps the MFR number is incorrect. Are there any
    numbers which might be wrong? Let me know what other numbers it might be
    and I'll check them out.

    Dear list,
    A while ago I mentioned a bit of aerospace debris that we found on the
    beach at Cocoa Beach, Fla USA.
    Several SeeSat-ers responded off-list with offers to help, pics on the
    way to y'all next week. Meanwhile, does anybody on the list recognise
    any of this info taken from the object:
    (inscribed inside a circle):
    (inscribed inside a circle):
    27-77008-51 CHG A
    MFR32946 8/3/92
    The object is structural, aluminum honeycomb core, fiber-reinforced
    composite skin, stainless steel fasteners, and kind of shattered and
    burnt. I was wondering if perhaps this was part of a sat or failed
    launch vehicle? Just curious if anyone recognises any of the numbers.
    Any clues will be appreciated. Thanks much!
