News Bulletin : ADA News Bulletin November 2011
35 NOVEMBER 2011 no false advice Please contact Garry Pammer, Alison Lacey or Heath Stewart on: Telephone (02) 9264 1111 Fax (02) 9264 1344 email email@example.com website clarkjacobs.com.au Dental specialists for over 20 years August 2011 TEASER answer clinical hints The August TEASER was a device given to your Compiler by his children on his 65th birthday. Going against the recent trend, there was a good response. There were seven answers and, as promised, the incorrect respondents are not identified by name, in the pious hope of inducing more readers to have a go at identifying TEASERS. There were two incorrect answers: “the device is an apple corer, resulting in a much cleaner cider end product without ‘Scrumpy’ overtones”, and “a flask clamp used in the processing of acrylic dentures”. Don’t be discouraged. Please keep trying. The correct answer is: it’s a device for loading shotgun cartridge cases, and dates from around 1900. You can use new or used cases, and to load them you unscrew the knurled ring on the right. For a used case, you remove the old percussion cap and insert a new one. You insert the new or re-primed case into the device, screw the knurled ring back, and seat the percussion cap firmly by pushing the button on the right. Next, you load the cartridge with the desired charge of black powder, cordite, or these days, nitrocellulose, followed by a pad, then the desired charge of shot, available in ten sizes, or for hunting, say, elephants, a solid lead bullet weighing 11⁄2 ounces. To keep the shot in, you insert a thin disc of cardboard. You now crimp the top of the case by pulling the left handle towards you while rotating the cartridge using the right handle. Some keen shooters still load their own cartridges. It may surprise readers that there were five correct answers. They came, in order of receipt, from: John Langdon (South Yarra 3141), Peter Favaloro (Lakes Entrance 3909), John Mathieson (Gelorup 6230), R. Andrew Smith (Deakin 2600) and Arthur Dent (firstname.lastname@example.org). None of the above appended any clinical hints, so only five slips of paper went into the hat. Margaret drew out the name Dent, so Arthur wins a handsome, inscribed, antique metal ADA paperweight. Honorary Clinical Associate Professor Barrie R D Gillings, 121 Bannockburn Rd, Turramurra 2074.
