First Use

I seem to recall that Miss Tick first made a shamble in The Wee Free Men. She used it at the beginning before she went to the Chalk. Can anyone verify? 02:57, 21 October 2006 (CEST)

Who says thaumometers are illegal (besides Emen), and who's going to tell the Wizards? --Old Dickens 23:53, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Yea, they aren't illegal. Ponder carries one around all the time. --Fhh98
Possibly one of the Faculty. Specific references would be helpful, particularly the first known citation of thaumometer. They may be something that has developed rapidly in the era of High Energy Magic, like the mobile phone. --Emen 10:01, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

On p.107 of I Shall Wear Midnight, it's referred to as a shambles, a different thing altogether. Typo, editing...? --Old Dickens 03:14, 31 October 2010 (CET)
