OBJECT: rope twister
DESCRIPTION: the twister is part of the ornament sector
Its strings are applied to the hem of blankets or curtains
WORKING NOTES: the most important part of the twister is a long and toothed item which is used to twist ropes; a handle moves some rings which move the toothed item twisting the threads.
Work was made by two of these machines in a long straight sloping road: they twisted a thread and, when it was properly stretched, the machines were stopped.
