A reproduction of the Martin Meyer (patent of 1924) four strand hook rope machine. This machine is non-geared. The strand hook and attached arms are cast in aluminum versus the original steel. The arms are set about three inches apart in the hardwood frame. This machine can be used for making three or four strand rope.
This unit is non-geared, so one turn of the handle is one turn of the strand hooks. So the turning becomes more controlled, and the yarns (string, twine, etc) forming the strands are less like to jump around as with the Bucklin (patented 1901) geared rope machine. (Price also less than half that of a good quality Bucklin).
The M2K Rope machine kit is composed of the rope machine, two cross shaped rope tools, and the pulley traveler kit. Shipping weight is about six pounds, as shown below.
The machine can be adapted to different mounting options such as mounting to a fence rail. This has been a particular concern for museum groups. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
