TREPHINE SURGEON'S TOOL. A PAINFUL LOOKING TOOL OF THE 1800'S. THE TREPHINE WAS USED TO RELIEVE PRESSURE ON THE PATIENT'S BRAIN. THEY WOULD PUSH THE SPIKE OUT OF THE CENTER AND TAP IT INTO THE SKULL TO HOLD IN PLACE, THEY WOULD THEN TURN THE SAW BLADE TO CREATE A HOLE TO VENT THE PRESSURE ON THE BRAIN. ALL PARTS ARE STILL PRESENT AND IN FINE CONDITION OVERALL.
