What Is It? :

Let’s get straight to the point

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TASSIE LIVING -

You’ll need to get straight to the point to guess this one

This week’s uniden­ti­fied wid­get was found at Smith & Co. An­tiques on War­wick St, Ho­bart.

It ap­pears to be a small type of man­ual drill or scor­ing ma­chine.

The hand pic­tured on the left of the im­age is turn­ing part of a pul­ley sys­tem which we think would op­er­ate the spin­dle.

The hand on the right of the im­age is op­er­at­ing a small level, which when pressed down, raises the small round plat­form to­wards the pointed end of the spin­dle.

The fastest read­ers to write in with the cor­rect an­swer will have their names pub­lished be­low next week’s seg­ment.
