Wanted: Ochydactyl

The Ochydactyl, a finger exerciser, according to ads, could improve the agility, flexibility, strength and independence of any pianist's, violinist's, cellist's or typist's fingers.  L'assouplisseur Ochydactyl (The Finger Softener) was invented by Frenchman Georges Rétif in 1922. It was produced in Sancoins, France. The design of the machine changed throughout its production but the basic mechanical principles remained the same.
