I have this piece which vaguely resembles 200, Technic Rack Winder Axle (Rebricked) but one end is different. It is 5 studs long, axle is 1 stud long, the gear lies between 3rd and 4th stud and the axle hole is approximately 1 stud deep.

There is no branding on the piece so I am not sure if it isn't something other than Lego.

Edit: The axle hole holds axles really tight, but the axle end doesn't hold other things too well. As for the gear teeth, they are exactly the same as in 3647 (the same shape number and size), although they are slightly moved, 10 degrees or maybe even less.

As mentioned it is possible it's not Lego, but I personally don't recall ever buying any technic-like non-Lego sets. Can't vouch for my brothers after who I've inherited most of my collection.

    Looks to me like the bits of plastic you get inside a pen, that make it click...

  • @ACarter I've dismantled a lot of pens in my life and they've all looked a bit different, not to mention that any axle fits perfectly in the axle hole and the bushes fit perfectly on the axle, at least I think so. I'll check it again when I am home.

  • Do the teeth mesh properly with LEGO gears? If not, it is not LEGO.

  • @Kramii bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=x1307 for example doesn't mesh

It is about the right size and shape to be the main shaft of this wind-up motor from set 4093:

Here's another view:

These pictures show the piece as white, but it might be a variant. I do not have one of these windups to take apart to check.

  • Could be a part of some other motor, too.
