Tooth pulling machine

O Boy always seems to have some invention rolling around in his mind, usually connected with some practical problem he needs to solve in the moment.  At the time of this invention he had a loose tooth that just wouldn't come out and he really didn't like wiggling it to encourage it!  So one day he came out of his room where all of his invention materials are and announced that he had created a tooth pulling machine.

It had a piece of yard with a loop at the end attached to an old ribbon spool with a handle.  You were supposed to put the loop on a loose tooth and then pull the whole thing by the handle, supposedly pulling out the tooth.

This time around, it just didn't work.  The loop kept slipping off his tooth.  Back to the drawing board!
