Description

The nature of my invention consists in giving to each strand or component part of a rope a uniform tension during the process of forming or laying up a wire rope, to accomplish which, I have organized a machine containing mechanism which I call a spool-carrier. Said container contains a spool of wire, and two or more grooved friction-rolls, over and around which the wire passes from the spool to the point for laying up the rope; also compound levers, friction-strap, or brakes, and spring-balances, as will be described.
