Thwaite's Mill, as Barbs has told us, made putty in the later years of its commercial life. This is a little less than one half of one of the mixing machines there. Scale is a bit difficult, but the wheel is about two and a half feet diameter and it is rolling around in a bowl about six feet diameter. This is on the first floor of the mill, that whole contraption was spinning at a fair old rate and the floor vibrating quite heavily . . .
I am glad I never had to work there. Hand held, leaning on a pillar, available light.

I was always amazed as a kid watching these glaziers at work.
They would take a lump of putty in their hand,and sqeeze it out like toothpaste to put the glass in.
I never gave it much thought how putty was made,so an interesting shot here.

The light catching the inside face of the drum has allowed the capture of movement very well Jon and I can almost smell the linseed oil as I type this

You could have rotated this through 90 to the left and entitled it 'Flat Spin'. Well, almost!
An intriguing subject with the movement well captured.

That's an impressive piece of kit, and the movement brings it alive.

you live and learn, never seen a putty mill before.
The head on shot shows a very intrestingly inclined axle, wonder what the shape of the horizontal wheel is like? concave to push it outward? or the same as the upper wheel?
