Was at the markets the other day and stumbled across these little beauties. I never used these as a kid but my first memory of them was from watching the Wizard of Oz. It was the Tin Man's equivalent to an Asthma Puffer or Deep Heat. He would have to stop every hour or so to put a couple of drops of oil into his joints before he would sieze up. The name Tin Man also reminds me of a uni days where a friend of mine, invited a lady friend back to the share house, only to keep everyone up with the sound of his rusted bed frame.
Being the hoarder that I am, I couldn't resist making a deal and I walked away with these three. Too bad I didn't have these back during uni days, I would have lent my friend the Tin Man one of these.
