I am also thrilled with mechanisms that do some operation, or in some cases, no operation at all. My father was a master machinist who also had a sense of humor. He used to make a little toy that he called a Bullshit grinder. It was a flat plate with two tee slots at right angles to one another. Like a cross. The slots would have a fitted sliding part in each of the tee slots. The sliding parts were attached to a flat bar, a handle, with a knob at the end. The handle extended over the edges of the flat plate. Turning the handle would cause the sliding parts to cross over one another in a fascinating way and the knob end of the handle would describe a perfect ellipse. He also made some things that he called a "bull cinch". That was a ten inch ring of stainless steel rod with the end welded shut. The ring had a sliding part that might be imagined as a key on a key ring. The sliding part (key) was a single shaft of stainless with a reverse element that made the sliding part resemble a huge fish hook. The use of the thing was explained. thus" "You jam the hook up a bulls ass and toss the ring over a fence post. Then; "it is a cinch that the bull ain't going anywhere". I suspect that Tank, DL, JJ and others could easily make a bullshit grinder from wood. It could be both pretty and functional. If a person begins to tell too many lies, then break out the grinder and make a few turns of the handle.OOOPS! Unintentional derail. It is all Billy's fault.
