    Question New Figure 9 users Gizmo

    Hi
    This thread kinda came about by the New product for figure 9 thread.
    I have printed up a drawing of the new gizmo and will be having a go at making some on the weekend but then I got to thinking, What are they called???

    I mean the next time I am out with some friends camping and they say, wow they look good and I say, yea I made them and they say, cool, what are they called. What do I say?

    Do I tell them I made a couple of "Dutches" or maybe some "Turks"?
    What do you all think, I don't think this has been brought up yet.

    I'd put 'em together, call it a "Dutch Turk".

    kinda of cool name that says nothing about the geometry (which seemed to evolve with nearly every posting) or use (in keeping with modern advertising techniques).

    but we need a different name for the one that was reported yesterday as having failed under the weight of Gibbon's tome. I'd call that one a
    "Busted Dutch".

    That's better than a "Turtch".
