Finned twisting machine

Date : 1910

The finned twisting machine, located on the ground floor, is an English machine dating back to 1920. It is made up of a cast-iron frame and a larger or smaller number of fins.
This machine was used to make reels.
Threads from the transmitting coils, placed at the top of the machine, are assembled and twisted by the fins on the receiving coils located at the bottom of the machine.
Therefore, from two bobbins each comprising six threads, a final product with twelve threads is obtained. This will either be packaged for sale or used to make cabled rope in the workshop. To ensure that the thread created is evenly distributed over the entire receiving reel, the latter is positioned on a tray that goes up and down.
