Someone on here had a really cool simple blackmatch setup. Coke bottle with a plastic pen tip glued into the center of the cap. Run yarn from above down through the coke bottle and through the cap/pen tip. Fill the bottle with slurry, and pull the yarn through.
The slurry gets pressed into the yarn as it's pulled through the pen cap, in addition to the pressure from the bottle full of slurry... It can then be straight wound around a drying frame. Very simple setup.
I am actually working on another blackmatch machine. I have one that uses 14 threads, but am designing a better one. I think I have figured out a way to create blackmatch with a solid core of thick slurry surrounded by around 16 threads. (Not sure exactly how many threads will be needed.) If it works, I will be able to create "coatable" blackmatch which can be waterproofed with NC Lac.
I would make a Visco machine if I had a working wood lathe...

I use fine NC powder as my binder! I don't have the time or patience for anything else...
