    I believe this is a Maypole machine or "Maypole braider".

    Talk about a boring job! I could do that, maybe for 15 minutes.

    Seems like an awfully expensive machine to wind up 6' of cord, even if you did 10k of them a day. Personally would have added a spool feeder, cutter and a wrapping setup on the other end...couldn't be that much more expensive than a pick'n place and a turntable timed and driven. And what the heck is that arm at the left of the turn table doing bobbing up and down an opening and closing some kind of snap hook, doomaflingything?

    Durst I say we are not seeing the whole operation or capabilities...

    Inherently restless...

    The combination of the machine plus the two workers seems unusual (wouldn't those two workers just be replaced with another machine?). This reminds me of watching machines like this on YouTube, and seeing comments in broken English eagerly inquiring about the price and whether they can be shipped to some low-infrastructure nation ASAP.

    It could all be built into the same machine...pretty simply. The data plate on the top of the pick'n place machine appears to be in Chinese and would bet they could pay those two workers for at least 5 years for the additional Duckets to build their functions in and by then the machine is tired and out of date anyway. Seems a bit Non-Sequitur trying to wrap the pieces together. Also odd the way the cords are frayed at the ends...I kept thinking sash chords or something. And as Shultz used to say "I Know Nothing"...

    These flicks are great but it just makes me wonder about the mechanical structure of the machine. That is how do they get those spools to navigate the circumference on those brading machines?


    The thought also come up that getting those brain bing machines started must bea chore. Every little e would need to be in the right order. Neat to watch ch though.

    That's awesome how it's all geared up. Kind of mind boggling.
