infernal device




Following the Scottish tradition of cute-sounding names for the most terrible of devices (c.f. Pilniewinkies), the Thumbikins are basically thumbscrews.


The fingers were placed in between the upper and lower bars and the nut was tightened using the separate tool.

Trivia & Comment

A thumbscrew by any other name would still crush the same.
