  1. Where can i but the 600 Gum Stimulator ???????

    I used my last one and want to buy a few more….In a particular Drug store in NYC????

  2. I have two with tips and a similar tool that has a brush on the end of it. The brush has a wire stem that is needled through a hole on the tool, bent downward into a notched area, then a retaining nut is screwed upwards to secure it in place. Handle same as the gum stimulators. Are they worth anything? If so, anyone interested?

  3. I have the instrument shown above. Is it worth something? It was my father’s,. It looks brand new. I saved it because it was his. I think it as never used.
