Homemade Rope
All it takes to make rope is a simple homemade hand crank machine and baling twine.

Rope making
machine
This machine was
made by my father
years ago when he
was a boy scout.  

This machine
works great. Just
string up the baling
twine and start
cranking.  The trick
is the movement of
the rope wrench
(see below).  When
it is done right it is
magical, the twine
twists up into rope
right before your
eyes.
Finishing
touch
Use a Bernzomatic
torch to burn off
the loose fibers
sticking out of the
rope
