T-nosed p4 is a period-4 oscillator that was found in October 1989 by Robert Wainwright.[1] It can be used as a filter that deletes every other lightweight spaceship in a stream of period 4n + 2.[2] A smaller variant was posted by Tanner Jacobi on December 4, 2017,[3] and a 79-glider synthesis of said variant was found by Jacobi and Mark Niemiec on May 8, 2019.[4] A statorless version is known as well.

The p36 traffic jam shows that the side sparks of the T-nosed p4 occasionally have uses

One half of Achim's p4 (excluding the central row) may act as the stator component of a seminaturally-occurring variant of this oscillator.
