I built this for a mill museum. It is used to feed a ribbon into a metal cylinder that is then placed on a loom. A hand crank on the top wheel drives the middle concave pulley. The ribbon feeds from the front through an eyebolt (not attached yet) over and between the concave and convex pulleys into a metal funnel (not attached) into a metal cylinder on the floor. Made of oak and cherry.

Did you design this, or is it a copy of a tool used in the spinning, weaving, industry? You can certainly see “spinning wheel” here. Is this a local museum? Quite a bit of that craft in Tn, both today, and yesteryear.

Thanks for posting.

another interesting piece. I’d love to see more detail on the build next time!

Built based on photo of one in another museum. The Falls Mill and Museum in Belvedere, TN is who requested it, about 60 miles from me , a very cool place

Very neat.

Some of this kind of heritage has to be preserved; even cursive writing is becoming unreadable to the yuounger generations.

I love historical pieces like this…would love to see a video of this in action.
