Free Plan: Festive Port Pourer

This 'Victorian' Port Pourer appeared as a free plan and 3 1/2 page article in issue 3 of MEW, winter 1990. If nothing else it proves that Stan Bray was willing to experiment with the range of topics covered by the magazine!

It may raise eyebrows if this is presented as a 'workshop tool', but nonetheless it was MEW free plan number 3, so here for your delectation and delight:

First you'll need a corkscrew. I don't suppose you have ever published the drawings for one of these?

Peter Hall’s link - It should have a live steam engine (compound of course) with “Mill” type boiler

And of course a ready supply of “vino”

A friend of mine was in service all his working life and asked me to make a cork retriever and drew a sketch so i did some research and found this:

who would have thought so many different patents taken on a gadget to deal with such a problem.

You can buy cheap flexible graspers.. spiral wound stainless with 3-4 sprung tines down the centre activated with a spring plunger. Before the advent of modern endoscapes and their tiny flexible camera versions we used to fish foreign objects out of patients by feel and luck.

Camera based endoscopy obviously makes that a much more reliable and fun game albeit at a heck of a cost with a whole slew of alternative grasper types and baskets and bags as well as ultrasonic probes and laser fibres - particulalry fun when frying and cracking bladder stones the long route...
