Dubbing Brush Spinner
This is a recent project, what I used in the past was basic and crude so being bored on day I decided to up-grade this item. Some parts from the old one were reused in this one, there are many different styles and I suppose this is a combination of them with some of my own. Pretty basic, hand powered but could be adapted to power with slight mods, the best part is it now works without breaking the wire prematurely, something that the old one did on a regular basis. The hook on the right hand side is attached to a spring plate, the spring is a rubber band or two wrapped around the base of that plate allowing it to give as the wire is twisted. If anyone would wish for more info just leave a comment and I will respond.
Added more pictures and some close up shots of how this is constructed, the main thought was to emulate the Nor Vise dubbing stand. The top of this has some leather laminated to it to help hold materials in place until closing the wire loop and at that time the table is lowered out of the way while spinning.
Thanks for looking……
hello friend great idea. I’m sitting here running my CAD program and designing one with some ideas from yours “I will be giving you credit when I post my design”. What I was wondering is did you find that having the thread right on the table surface was better or would you of wanted it a little higher? I’m thinking of tying large hackles and bigger fibers. Just curious thanks again!
