The Scarborough Joke Shop's Lung-o-Matic™ Joke Lung Tester
(also known as The Talcum Powder Pipe)

Lung-o-Matic™ The Original Trademarked Joke Lung Tester!

This is a great novelty product!!

You will have the ability to blow into the pipe and make the wheel spin, but hand it to a friend and they get covered in talcum powder!

Don't be tempted by over-priced alternatives! This is just as good as other £400 models and does exactly the same! All individually handmade with copper and brass.

The Legend
The Lung Tester traces its origins back to the maritime traditions of old, particularly within the Navy. This tool, known as the Lung Tester, was utilised by divers prior to submerging for a dive. By blowing into the pipe, they would gauge the duration the wheel spun. Upon resurfacing, the divers would repeat the test, ensuring they maintained the same blowing duration, thus verifying the integrity of their lungs post-dive.

What does it entail?
If you're unfamiliar with these devices, you're in for an intriguing discovery! A brief video clip showcases their capabilities: you can blow into the pipe to set the wheel in motion. However, pass it to a friend, and they'll find themselves dusted with talcum powder.

The ultimate prank!
