Vintage c.1900 Barber-Colman Textile Knotter

Vintage Barber-Colman hand knotter manufactured in Rockford, Wisconsin. These handheld devices were designed for the textile industry to automatically tie the knots in the ends of the yarn during the weaving process. Production of these units started in 1900.

This unit seems to be fully functional and is actually quite an engineering marvel to watch in action! It is in very good condition.

T is a number stamped on the unit that may be the serial number: C4870.
