Bucklin's Rope Maker
One of the most popular of the iron rope machines, the 1901 Bucklin is 8 1/2 inches high, 13 1/2 inches overall, including the wood mount. The original wood mount was designed to slide over a wood fence board or wagon box. The wood is marked "Chicago Appliances Fa***ries" (factories?). The iron main gear is marked "Pat Nov 12, 1901". While the fence clamp works well, the device can easily be bolted to either a vertical post or horizontal bench or saw horse. (See patent illustration). Fine, usable condition.
