Rope Twister



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.
