    It looks broken. The rotary girder should be inversely proportional to the angle of the dangle.

    Yes. The two pieces in my hand are removable. I cannot figure out how they attach to the base though.

    It's a clobbers tool for stretching shoes or boots. Although I think it should be called a dinglehopper.

    I think we have a winner. Though I couldn't find a google pic of forms that look like these, it does appear that's what they are. Kinda funny shaped for show forms though. Hmm.

    It has to be a newer model. The older ones had Phillips head screws and the Dinglehopper Logo. If it was the older one it would be worth a small fortune.

    Parts of a device to hold/support shoes to be shined. The curved metal bits fit onto a bracket that fits into the base plate attached to the work bench.

    Think of a shoe tree with an attachment.

    Premeditated and kinda twisted Larry!

    Then, bag several unrelated items together and mark it: "Do Not Separate!"

    There you go.

    I think CBS bought the company in the late 60's and the quality went down.

    They re-sold the company to some of the original employees and the rest is history.

    They have been pumping out "retro" versions of the same old dinglehopper for evermore!

    Yeah, but the older ones last longer.
    I traded one for an Electric Mistress.
    I was flanging for days!

    That's not only the dinglehopper. You also have the dinglehopper hanger.

    So, it's a clobbers doo-hickey? If you put Clob-X on a clobber, would they cancel each other out?
