    Interesting that their has been little change in the basic principles in how many millenia? A classic case of if it ain't broke don't fix it.

    there is nothing as impressive as visiting a wire rope factory and seeing the dozens of machines merrily twisting away with 1000s of strands of wire making many sizes and grades of wire rope at the same time
    I visited the WESTFÄLISCHE factory in Dortmund a couple times They make the Python brand name elevator rope there and do laboratory testing of their customers propitiatory fittings Since we bought our rope from them what better place to have our fittings for my freight elevators certified than the folks who made the ropes for us.

    Twisting right-hand laid line or rope. Ho-humm.
    Twisting is for kids, get a load of braiding. Apparently too complicated for a 30 second GIF, sorry. Found other machines with more spindles, making smaller line. This is getting into mooring line, judging comparison to the low-volt control buttons, around 4"Ø I'd wager.
    Sincerely,

    I think Jonathan Winters had a character that was from an island that was 40 miles long, but only 200 yards wide, and the only industry was rope making.

    I have an easement adjoining my property; an abandoned railroad spur. Previous encroachment pared it from whatever width to only ~6' x 150', both ends are blind. I'd like to annex it. I'll have a spaghetti farm...
