slow news days…

With much of my attention being spent on the remodel–which is almost finished!–I haven’t been spending much time corkscrewing around.  And, so corkscrew news has been a little slow.

That said, RL (henceforth known as “P-Dibby” for a variety of reasons) managed to score a fantastic Hagenauer corkscrew on a non-ebay site, and this afternoon I did manage to pick up a 1929 Detroyes patent for a fair price.

It looks a bit rusty, and hopefully it will clean up.  I definitely have a thing for prong pullers, and this is the first example of the Detroyes for me.

And, of big news for the seller of the Moore patent that I mentioned a few days ago.  After months of listing, and relisting, and relisting, and relisting, and relisting, and relisting, and relisting, and relisting, and relisting, and relisting, and relisting, and relisting her sardine fork with corkscrew, received some bids!    In the end the Moore sold for 62.51…
