Feb 28, 2009: Scalpel Drum

Scalpel Drum? What the hell is a Scalpel Drum?

This, is a Scalpel Drum.


Wow, that's really impressive.
Now, what's it for, what's it do?

Quote:
Test drums for ophthalmic scalpels, still in use by eye doctors around 1965. Made by stretching a piece of kidskin taut on a drum, the scalpel was sharp enough if it cut the fibers under its own weight. This was from before the days of single-use surgical instruments; the scalpels were sharpened and sterilized before procedures.
Cutco, eat your heart out.

Eye see.

They need to bring them back. The crap they are getting from overseas doesn't last past the skin.

I see. The scalpel drums are used to test the sharpness of scalpels, while the sharpness of arrowheads are tested on plain ol' scalps.

you guys think you're sooo clever, doncha!

It's cool. It's a very simple calibration instrument. I like.

It takes up much less storage space if you only save the good bits!


xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Mar 1 11:42 PM

Besides, you can't eat a dead hooker all at once.

There's only so much you can fit into the oven.
I'm German, and know about ovens...
