Planetary ropewalk - Domanoff workshop.

Post by Brian077 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 1:01 am

Yippee, been waiting for this baby to arrive in my mailbox, and I am so excited !

Its the Alexey Domanoff ropewalk machine which I believe is probably the best value for money machine on the market, considering it can lay from 2 - 4 strands of thread in left or right hand ropes.

Hope Donnie doesn't mind me sharing the link for Alexeys tools.

I have purchased a few things from him before and can highly recommend the quality of his tools and his great mail order service.

Just finished assembling this and it was quite easy. It came with an instructional disc which I could watch as I assembled the machine and there are also videos on u tube.

Now I need to go and buy some thread and do a few practice runs.

It's a good machine Brian, takes a little practice but does make good rope. Get yourself some extra bobbins and make some take up spools, you'll need both.

Hi Don,
yes this machine is a wonderful ropewalk and probably the best on on the market. I bought some extra plastic spools for the threads, but I could not find any old fashioned wooden spools, so I made some up myself yesterday.
