Wires for TP 202


no images were found

A few weeks back I posted a series of images from an old mill in Andover. They were mostly focussed on the machinery and broader space, but I also shot some of the details of this cool old place. This (obviously) is one of them.

The coiled canvas band on the left is not toilet paper, as the “TP 202” in the title MIGHT lead you to believe. The company that operated here made fine wire “combs” used in the textile industry. The wire teeth are fastened to the canvas band. Different grades of wire are used on different materials.

I know. I was there. I saw the product and still had a hard time visualizing how it is used.
