Chart for Shabbos Daf 82b
THE TUM'AH OF AVODAH ZARAH (1)
AND HESET (2)
(1) This refers to the actual article of Avodah Zarah itself, and not to items used for serving Avodah Zarah. Items used for serving Avodah Zarah (Tashmishei Avodah Zarah) are Metamei only with Maga according to everyone, and not with Masa nor Even Mesama.
(2) "Heset" in this context refers to an article of Avodah Zarah which carries something else (for example, both items were placed on opposing sides of a scale, and the Avodah Zarah lifts, so to speak, the other item, by outweighing it. This is in contrast to Masa, which refers to when others carry the Avodah Zarah. The Gemara (83a) states that the laws of Heset are identical to the laws of Even Mesama, and those who maintain that Avodah Zarah is Metamei with Even Mesama will maintain that it is also Metamei with Heset.
