After posting the oversized walker corkscrew on the CCCC page, I was contacted by another collector who wants to either buy, or trade, for the piece.
Given that CB is selling off his collection, I am guessing that the KITF (keep it in the family) mantra is no longer part of our little consortium, and I am always willing to make a deal.
And, a picture of some awesome corkscrews was sent as trade bait; including a lews patent, clough power cone, vicktoria bell, and others.  I have recently (re)developed a love of American corkscrew patents and the clough is  a piece I have long been after–so I am leaning that direction.
Also, I received the Strait patent yesterday and it is beautiful…and, a little oil had the bell moving up and down the threads as it was designed.
Pictures to follow…if I can find the cord for my camera
