Last week

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

Last week’s mys­tery item drew a huge range of wild guesses and de­tailed ex­pla­na­tions from many read­ers.

Dr Willem Halm, Rod Hewer, Ste­wart Ed­wards, Glenn Miller and Jane Hutcheon were on the money with a den­tal press.

The heavy-duty gad­get is used in the mak­ing and re­pair of den­tures and or­thodon­tic ap­pa­ra­tus such as re­tain­ers.

Other sug­ges­tions in­cluded a golf ball press, a clamp used for vul­can­is­ing a tyre’s in­ner tube and a brand seal.

Food-re­lated the­o­ries were pop­u­lar too, with Peter Wil­lis, Steven Vick­ery, He­len Mil­lar, Heather Hen­der­son and Les­ley Grano sug­gest­ing a nutcracker, while oth­ers thought it was a tongue or duck press, or even a Com­mu­nion wafer press.
