A "bottle jack" can be either a small hydraulic
(car) lifting jack or a clockwork mechanism for
turning a vertical spit to ensure meat is evenly
roasted.

I have one of each, the meat one being a late
18th Century antique. Both are in store, but I
could dig out the antique to photograph if anyone
wants to see it - and is willing to wait a week
or two.

James - who (DV - contracts not exchanged yet)
seems to have sold his house in Midsomer Norton
and misses his library dreadfully
