How the Machine Works

Your foot works the treadle
The treadle moves the footman
The footman turns the wheel crank
The wheel turns and engages the drive band
The drive band transmits rotational force to either the:

  • Flyer in a single drive scotch tension system, or
  • Bobbin in a single drive, irish tension system, or
  • Both in a double drive system.
