Mechanical Corkscrews

Their evolution, actions, and patents

- Livre en langue etrangère -

Indisponible
Ferd Peters has the ability to look at a mechanical corkscrew and immediately sense how it works. That mechanical intuition is enhanced by his experience as a seasoned corkscrew collector and by his astute powers of observation. Ferd has an extensive corkscrew collection, and in order to test their action and efficiency, many of these corkscrews were personally tested on his wine bottles, as described in his preface. For those who have similar mechanical ability and for those of us who do not, this book translates into a valuable asset.
Ferd's talent has been combined with diligence and dedication to the study and research of the corkscrew literature, patent specifications, and registered designs. He has exhaustingly compiled wonderful material, including many corkscrews never seen before, and has painstakingly organized them into practical categories. Through this book, Ferd makes us realize the excitement of even common mechanical corkscrews, as well as complicated and rare ones.
