Clever Combination Cork Screw and Cork Extractor

From a 1919 issue of Electrical Examiner:

Combination Cork Screw and Cork Extractor.

(316) Dan Lingo, Huntington Ark., submits an idea of a combination cork screw and cork extractor, and our illustration shows the idea which consists of a handle, cork screw on one end and beaded wire ends with the ring, at the other side. The modus operandi is shown in Fig. No 2. With a device of this kind as is well-known the cork can be extracted very readily once it is pushed inside the bottle.

A. The idea is a good one, and while there is of course nothing new as far as the two utensils are concerned, the combination of the two into one is undoubtedly a good feature. To our mind, if the wires could be pushed inside the handle, out of the way, it would be an added feature of merit. We believe a patent can be obtained on a device of this kind
