Do you know what these are used for? I must admit it took me awhile to figure it out but they were enough of a challange to make, I had to persist. They are commonly used to make the Hedebo lace or making Batenburg Lace and the step units allow you to dictate the size of the hole openings. Starting at 1/8", they increment by 1/16" up through 3/4", plus or minus .010. The one shown is made from Cherry wood.
Price is $ 20.00 each.
And check out Hedebo's in the Bobbin FAQ-tory for a discussion on the uses.
