    It is possible we have some confusion in regard to terminology.

    In my previous post, when I say braid the rope, it was twisted rope, but the only term I could come up with to describe the act of adding a loop to was to braid it, as it's similar to braiding hair.

    Note it's secured with planer jacks and screws to a T-slotted base. This monster might have been driven from below! Sensible, open the gap, crane in a blank, close the gap and set to whittle away.
    Unsure about the motor endbell visible to the left, certainly connected to shaft holding the gear.

    One piece, the slot in the middle is for run-out of the tools.
