Doll Him Up

This plain white muslin doll is 13" tall, with 8” of skinny legs. Wires inside the stuffed arms and legs make him easily posable. Him? Well, it looks himish, but it’s naked and decidedly gender-free. It also looks like there’s an Edward Gorey character trying to get out, but that’s just our impression. A bunch of these painted in dancing costumes, or as frogs, or acrobats, on a mantel would make a mighty pretty scene, we think.

HEMOSTATIC HEAVEN

Hemostats are the clamplike devices dangling from veins and arteries in melodramatic operating scenes. Our particular collection are Pakistani surgical-grade instruments made of magnetic stainless steel. As such we rate them pretty good, but not fantastic. Hemostats look like little pliers. The jaws are relatively fine, with rounded tips. The inside faces are lightly serrated to get a grip on tubing or body plumbing. And the handles are much longer than the jaws. Now the heavenly part. Great hobby clamps that can be worked into small areas. Fine heat sinks for electronics. Good hook extractors for trout fisherpeople. Excellent tubing clamps for flow-sensitive chemistry experiments. Sizes are approximate length.
