NEEDLES — The first two listed
below are steel, blunt, also called tapestry needles. The next is hardwood,
with a rectangular cross-section. The stole needle is blunt steel. The
rest of the needles are very sharp ones, in various lengths.
TRIMMER SHEAR — All steel, a handy thread clipper.
WARPING PADDLE — A small plastic hole-and-slot (ten of each) reed set into a plastic handle.
LINEN TESTER MAGNIFIER — A calibrated magnifier. For weaving, used to check sett (it has many other applications). Working field is 1" x 1", 5X power.
SCHACHT ROPE MACHINE — Feed in strings or yarns—and crank out rope. Use your left-over bits to make plied belts, handles, mitten strings, materials for coiled baskets.
LECLERC FRINGE TWISTER — This handy little device plies a fringed edge. Clamp several threads into each clip and crank till the threads start to kink. Un-clamp ends and knot.
