I had no response and I used my best Google Translate Spanish. Perhaps I inadvertently accused someone's mother of being a walking stick?

Probably the worst thing you could do!  :)

I got the gadget at a renomated online auction house and am quite pleased with it. Do you need the reference, GrahamB?

Best wishes

Yes, please StJohn!

Thanks, both!

Just a warning: my Kekokrak collapsed after 4 or 5 dissections! :hissyfit:

The piece holding the klicky's head cracked on both sides:




Now the head can move over the critical point and thus the klicky escapes decapitation, even when the nut is maximally fastened:




The head-holding part clearly is too weak and should have been manufactured out of metal. :sherlock:

Not happy with my purchase after all. :'(
