       So this is just a rack?

       That's good. 'cause I can draw it...but I ain't cuttin it in four.   

       Some how I don't think you've understood [Laimak]. Racking wasn't fun at all. Especially when they used those spiky rabbit rollers under your back (please don't tell me you've included a rabbit to massage the back). You'll be advocating choke-pears for facial toning next.   

       Anyway the "drawing" part of hang, drawing and quartering doesn't refer to being drawn as in stretched on the rack, it means to draw as in extract. The torturees innards were drawn out of their stomach while they watched. Not good exercise, I fancy.

       //The torturees innards were drawn out of their stomach while they watched// I don't think that by this stage they were torturees, simply condemned. And the innards were frequently burnt.
