  What good looking fuse!   I hope this helps as a inspiration to all present and future fuse makers.

 

Yup he makes the machines and sells them.

Finally done with the new machine. Im pretty sure it will weave alot nicer than the last one since the plates spins a lot faster now and the drum pulls slower !

Also the second plate spins faster then the first one !

 

Just need to wait for the thread i ordered pretty sure 15.000 yards is enough for this machine for awhile :D

Im working on a new machine now 

 

My plan is to use these bearings for the disc's

And use these Motors

And these Pulleys

You will need a microcontroller and motor controllers to control these steppers. Of course, you will have the added benefit of being able to finely control the relative speed of the discs.

Every time someone gets close to a working visco machine they stop posting and their vids vanish, without another post ever.

I've noticed the same. They seem to get as far as a working prototype, then nothing. I suspect they are "builders" that didn't understand what they were getting into. Building the first machine is maybe half the work, you still have to get it working properly. That can take a lot of trial and error, IIRC Lloyd called running his Bickford machine "a four hour heart attack".

They can be a fickle beast indeed, them visco weavers. Built one years ago and I can surely agree that getting it together in one piece is just the beginning of problems :D

But I have been refining it from time to time and after "some" upgrades I can deem it working rather satisfactory.
