A hat stretcher I found in a German auction. Starting price was out of my reach, so not mine. But a very cool design I haven't seen before.

My ex boss is a would be wood worker and always looking for projects. So I asked him to make me a 'belly board' like this. It works really well and I use it a lot. This winter when he is bored and looking for something to do I will get him to make me one with a more radical drop. Now if only I could convince him to make blocks and flanges!!!!

Now that's a giant corkscrew! But seriously, the mechanics are the same. Very interesting and cool object!
