Making a Ropewalk Article by Phil Krol


Recommended Posts

This is a very simple rope walk to build with parts easily obtainable. I built this some years ago and with a little bit of experience turns out beautiful rope. I used the motor off an old Emesco dentist drill which gives me the capability to throw a switch and reverse the direction of the motor. I also purchased the “Jim” rope walk but was in the middle of rigging a model and did not have time to devote to learning the nuances of the machine at the time to produce really nice rope. That is on my list of things to do in the near future. Just really wanted to praise the simplicity and value of the “Phil Kroll” model for anyone considering building one.
