We actually did visit that exhibit on torture devices. Its a traveling exhibition and a real minder-binder. The collection is extraordinarily complete and authentic, making viewing particularly uncomfortable knowing that this stuff was actually used on someone. The sheer volume and range of implements is a testament to the perversity that some humans are willing to engage in. All of the standard mechanizations are represented, as well as many, many other devices that are well beyond most people's imaginations. All in all, a very powerful show. Highly recommended if it comes to a city near you.

The main event this week has been completing my watch and chain for the ACJ exhibition "Sleight of Hand". The last element to be completed was the fitting of a glass to the 1838 silver watch-case which was the catalyst for the whole piece and I found an incredible place in Kent where, for a very modest fee, a traditional thick, bevelled mineral-glass was cut to fit, polished and fitted. (Anyone else requiring this service should contact "Crystalfit":…See More
