I assumed Steve would get this immediately.
On a side note...Steve was on path to be a dentist in a galaxy far away. I used his articulator as the basis for an "Alien" Mardi Gras costume where I rigged the teeth up with a contractor bag and some Styrofoam.
His was pretty similar to the pic Red posted on the right, and I had the metal rod part shoved down my pants and used a belt around my torso to stabilize the top part of the rod. Add an over-sized button up shirt and I had something akin to:
OK, I see the pics, but what exactly does it do/is it used for?
