Last week

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

Last week’s mys­tery item at­tracted a very stong re­sponse with more than 15 pos­si­ble an­swers sent in.

The de­vice is known as a linen tester, used to mea­sure the warp and weave of fab­ric. The round hole would house a mag­ni­fy­ing glass, while the square would be sur­rounded by en­graved mark­ings to in­di­cate the num­ber of threads per square.

Anna-Christina Lees, Max Neil, Ross Ogilvy, Paul Sch­luter, Steve Cooper, Svend Mad­sen, Brian Slade, Sue All­ford, Pa­tri­cia Hatwell and Robert Bow­ers were all on the money this week.
