From pile of rust to working pirn winder

Posted by Daniel Paulo on

The pirn winder is an important piece of kit for the Hattersley Loom weaver.  Correctly set up it will provide a consistent pirn for the shuttle, perfectly wound.

Our winder was a motorless pile of rust, a month later a very handy working machine!
