  • A thingamojig is the apparatus used to perform nano measurements with the dual slit diffraction principle, whereas, a thingamobob is used to keep the door from slamming shut.

  • They're both something you can't pronounce, can't spell and have no idea what they are.

  • The thingamojig is for holding the dohicky so it can be worked on. the thingamobob is for mesuring the dohicky to make sure its plumb.
