            Itís got shape, itís got form, and itíll probably have you going in circles Ė but isnít that what we do normally? Intrigue and curiosity are our specialties, and this monthís GUESS WHAT wonít let you down.

           

Adjustable springs, thumb screws, moving parts, and lots of shine and polish make for a complete package. Patented Sept. 25, 1888, we offer this challenge to your sanity with precious little help from the P.P.P.P. (Perplexing Panel of Plausibility Purveyors.) Dimensional references will come first, and then weíll get on with the guessing marathon: oval, 11 by 9-5/8 inches; height, 4-1/2 inches.

            ĎNuff said. Is it:
1) Ladiesí shoe tree closet organizer
2) Ice cream vat multiple gang scoop disher
3) Landscaperís root ball transplanting tool
4) Circus trainerís elephant poop scoop
5) Chrome plated Christmas Tree stand
6) Frozen ice cream on a stick chocolate dipping machine
7) Vintage naval helix lazy susan ship-to-shore signaling machine
8) Custom hat makerís head sizer
9) Dinerís dishwasher cup rinsing and drying rack
10) Golf club mitten covers drying and shaping frame.

            The correct answer is hidden amongst the above. Lucky guess verified next month. Tune in! *

Answer to August 2003 'Guess What?'

Last monthís Guess What featured an all-weather brass/bronze fence stretcher and mending tool. It had two focal points: 1) the spring activated clamping vice-like jaws which grabbed the wire fence 2) the ring loop which allowed a pry bar or pipe to apply fulcrum leverage, or be fastened to a horseís saddle,

creating the tautness needed to complete the job.*
