Ropewalk Scale Ropemaking Tool
Ropewalk Rope Making Tool makes scale rope for ship models and many other hobbies.
The Ropewalk scale ropemaking tool will assist to make scale rigging. The laser-cut basswood ropewalk will put a master's touch on ship models with handmade rope. The Ropewalk turns ordinary thread into realistic 3-strand scale rope quickly and easily. No complicated mechanics, bobbins, rails or trucks. The Ropewalk has only two main parts the gear head and the tail end. It lays up (twists) any thread or cordage into high quality rope in all the necessary lengths and diameter to fully rig your model. Best of all, the tool allows experimentation with different cordages to create new rope designs.
The Ropewalk can also assist in making larger diameter lines for larger scales, such as anchor hawsers, tow lines, shrouds and stays by starting with two, or even three strands. Also great for Western-motif kits such as stagecoaches or covered wagons & Civil War artillery.
