Needle Mould (1)
For needles used in handframes.
Art work details
Each handframe had its own mould for casting the needles into leads. A mixture of lead and tin was heated and poured into the mould. Needles were then placed into the molten metal. The number of needles held by each lead varied for different frames. The number of leads in 3" determined a machine's gauge.
