They are in their twilight years. I'm just hoping they sell off most the stuff they have before leaving us but I doubt that that will happen . :( It's going to be one heck of an auction ! :roll:

I think the device is for "flooting" lace on petticoat type of wearing apperal used by the rich and famous of years gone by. :D

The lace was soaked in starch and then to almost dry and then put through the hand cranked "flooter" (not fluter)the results were ruffled/fluted lace edging that would be applied to where ever it was desired.

That was my best shot at guessing what it might be :mrgreen:

What is it ????????

Yeah, it's a clothing flooter, fluter. whatever, and it has two round bars that are heated and inserted into the two crimpers. Are you still using yours? :P :lol:
