DESCRIPTION

This is the later version of Louis Kummer's "Ausstosser" (cork ejector). 


The operation begins with inner threaded shaft up; outer slotted shaft down and frame positioned over cork to center worm.  Clockwise turning inserts worm.  Further clockwise turning causes the spiral slotted outer shaft to rise around a pin fixed to frame and pull cork. After removal the cork is held by cork grippers at the bottom of the outer shaft and is easily removed by reversing the operation and without having to grip the wet cork.


See Peters Mechanical Corkscrews page 129.  Peters says "... made by Louis Kummer and shown in his 1909 catlogue as the "Ausstosser" (cork ejector).  The lower end of the raising shaft is provided with claws, it is typical for most of L. Kummer's corkscrews."
