New Free Plan Added
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!

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.
