The assembly incorporating the key-operated mechanism.
and Cylinder Bore: The cylinder serves three important functions in an internal-combustion (IC) engine: 1) retains the piston and rings, and for this job must be precisely round and have a uniform diameter (for performance applications 0.0005-inch tolerance is considered the maximum allowable); 2) must have a surface finish that ensures both optimum ring seal (smooth and true) and yet provides adequate lubrication retention to ensure long life for both the piston and rings; and 3) the cylinder bore acts as a major structural element of the cylinder block, retaining the cylinder heads and the bottom end components. The cylinder bore design, finish, and its preparation techniques are extremely important aspects of performance engine design.
A container in a revolver for the ammunition, which generally rotates around an axis parallel to and below the barrel enabling a single shot to be fired with each indexed movement.
a cylindrical hole bored in the engine block. The cylinder is closed at the top by the combustion chamber and at the bottom by a moveable piston which is attached to a crankshaft. When the air/gas mixture explodes at the top of the cylinder, the force of this explosion drives the piston downward providing the engine's power.

A housing that contains a tumbler mechanism and a key-way plug that can be turned only by the correct key. It includes a cam or spindle to transmit rotary action to a lock or latch mechanism. For security and keying versatility, authorities generally specify a pin-tumbler cylinder of no fewer than five pins. The two types of cylinders, the mortise cylinder (round, threaded housing) and the bored lock cylinder (sometimes called a cylinder insert), which both provide the same functional value of security and convenience and are often included in the same keying system.
A hole in the engine block in which a piston moves up and down and combustion occurs. Engines can have three to 12 cylinders.
The part of a lock that contains the tumbler mechanism and keyway. The cylinder will permit only the correct key to enter and turn, thus operating the locking mechanism.
The lock component where the key is inserted. Also known as a "Cylinder" or a "Keyhole".
Highly polished cylinder in which the piston/driver assembly moves up and down.
The rotating part of a revolver that contains the chambers.
The core of a padlock where the key is inserted. Higher quality locks have brass or bronze cylinders to resist corrosion.
A device, operated by a key, which extends or retracts the bolt or latch of a lock.
The portion of a lock containing the plug with keyway and a body with the pin tumbler mechanism. The properly cut key allows the cylinder to rotate the driver mechanism which unlocks the lock. The two types of cylinders, the mortise cylinder (round, threaded housing) and the bored lock cylinder (sometimes called a cylinder insert), which both provide the same functional value of security and convenience and are often included in the same keying system. (See keying.)
The cylinder is located between the barrel and the standing breech on a revolver. The cylinder contains the chambers that hold the ammunition and contains the blast of the powder.
A round chamber for the piston to travel through.
A hydraulic actuator constructed of a plunger or piston inside a cylindrical housing. The piston or plunger operates because of pressurized liquid.
Part of a revolver, immediately behind the barrel, that revolves and has a number of chambers into which cartridges are placed.
The piston compartment in an actuator or reciprocating compressor.
Close fitting metal tube in which a piston slides. In the case of an engine, the cylinders may be bored directly into the cylinder block, or on some engines, cylinder liners are used which rest in the cylinder block and can be replaced when worn with matching pistons to avoid the requirement for reboring the cylinder block.
A hollow tubular area in the cylinder block where the piston travels and combustion takes place.
The round assembly of the lock which provides the ability to lock a door through the tumbler and the keyway.
A rotating cartridge container in a revolver. The cartridges are held in chambers and the cylinder turns, either to the left or the right, depending on the gunmaker's design. as the hammer is cocked.
The barrel-shaped part of the revolver that holds the cartridges and rotates, allowing the charge holes to be aligned with the barrel for firing.
The cylindrical-shaped assembly containing the tumbler mechanism and the keyway, which can be actuated only by the correct keys.
Cylinders are the core of your engine, and they are the location where combustion occurs. There are a number of key components that work together inside each cylinder to create the power that propels your vehicle down the road. At the top, there are intake valves that feed fuel and oxygen into the chamber, and exhaust valves that vent waste gases from the cylinder. At the base of the cylinder is a piston that is being driven up and down inside by the crankshaft, which in turn is spinning power out to the transmission and then to your tires.
The part of a revolver which revolves. The cylinder contains 5, 6, or more chambers into which the ammunition is placed. Decocker
Contains the tumbler and keyhole of a lock. This is the part of the lock into which the key is fit.
On a revolving type firearm, the mechanism holding a number of cartridges and moving about an axis in such a manner that successive charges are correctly aligned and locked in position for firing.
A fluid vessel with piston and shaft that moves as fluid pressure increases or decreases.
A hollow tube-shaped pipe in the engine block. The piston rides up and down in the cylinder to compress the fuel/air mixture that drives the engine.
The rotatable part of a revolver that contains the chambers.
The cylindrical subassembly of a lock containing a cylinder plug with keyway and a cylinder body with tumbler mechanisms.
That part of a revolving firearm which holds the ammunition in individual chambers. The cylinder then rotates as the gun is used to present each round in turn to the barrel for firing.
A cylindrical hole or bore in the metal engine block. During running, pistons move up and down in these holes, when at the certain intervals air and fuel is injected, with exhausts being blown out. The sequence depends on electronics and rpm at that moment. Some road cars may even have oval cylinders, but that is forbidden in Formula 1.
The part of the lock in which the the pins are set and which contains the plug.
The drum of a revolver that contains the chambers for the ammunition.
Chamber in which a piston is driven.
In an engine, the round hole in the engine block in which the piston(s) ride.
1. A solid figure described by the edge of a rectangle rotated around the parallel edge as axis; the ends of a cylinder are parallel and equal circles. 2. The chamber in which the piston moves in a reciprocating engine. 3. Pressurized container used to store or transport gases.
The chamber in which the piston moves in gas-operated weapons.
A cylinder in the central working part of a reciprocating engine, the space in which a piston travels. Multiple cylinders are commonly arranged side by side in a bank, or engine block, which is typically cast from aluminum or iron before precision features are machined into it. (Ceramics have also been tried, so far unsuccessfully.)
