DESCRIPTION

Look Closely!- This is not your ordinary Hercules corkscrew

Here is a very unusual and hard to find corkscrew. In this Hercules type corkscrew there are two pin cast on the rotating shaft above the corkscrew. There are two slots in the frame (see photo below). When the pins are "dropped" through the frame, the frame slides up toward the handle allowing for easy removal of the cork fromthe worm. According to Peters in Mechanical Corkscrews, this device is based on Böhme's German spring barrel (see page 94).
