Did my uncle forward you this?

Often confused with a flambastic dobulator with the finnigan pin removed.

If you can't find one at a nearby dealer, I guarantee that Lee Valley makes one.

If you have an older mechanical one, make sure you use it with a left-handed smoke shifter, or you may grint your sprundle.

You can often use a board stretcher in-lieu of a blurfl.

Blurfls are cool but I prefer the more sophisticated retroencabulator. The turboencabulator has also reached a high level of development.

Or is it the one you use to get the framistam in the warnall?
