3 X 3 Rope Making Machine

Following my building of the simple Rope Making machine featured in issue 58 of Constructor Quarterly, I decided to make a much more complex one. This has three sets three bobbins. When building Rope Making machines it is important to ensure that each twist in the making of the rope is done on the opposite direction. This is to ensure that the rope will not unravel once it is taken off the reel.
