Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; this item was donated by Dr. Mark Trepanier from Farnham, Quebec; the original Wig-L-Bug was patented in 1940; the inventor claimed that the amalgamator could produce an amalgam in only seven seconds, compared to the ninety seconds it took previously; instead of a mere vibrator, the capsule holding the metals and mercury would have the direction of its axes changed, and be moved in every essential way to produce a thorough amalgam

Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; this item was donated by Joan Burbank from Victoria, British Columbia; the Victor Electric Corporation began making x-ray machines in 1896; they became the Victor X-Ray Corporation in 1920, were acquired by General Electric in 1926, and by 1930 the company was renamed the General Electric X-Ray Corporation; this clock is intriguing due to the fact that it times minutes and hours, its smallest interval being 1/4 of a minute; while exposure times were slower than the present day during the 1920s, x-rays only took between 2-10 seconds, depending on the film and the tooth, and most x-ray units had timers attached; this was perhaps a timer for developing x-ray film
