If you don't understand it..draw it..

A bit chilly in my workshop today..but with 2 cardies and 2 pairs of socks I sat in there and pondered. I have bought a few more items for the A1 Scrap Metal collection and this seemed a good time to study them. One particular object, labelled a "Tension Gauge", which I bought for £2 from Blakemere was baffling I sat and drew I understand how the thing works..Still not sure where it was the textile industry maybe? but I figured out how the bits on the side clipped in and how the scale worked and the tension could be altered..

Lovely things. I like the way you try and work out how they work. There was a tin of metal bits in my Dad's collection that I really wanted you to have, but he seemed very reluctant to part with it. I think they are something to do with wireless communication, but not exactly sure...

I look forward to seeing more of your dad's collection.
