Earlier to make bundles of thread for dyeing and for making different designs one has to use two tree trunks. Had to walk around the trunks making an elliptical shape for winding the thread bundle. This led to less output with more time consumption. The innovator started designing a machine that could do winding and spinning work at a faster rate. The machine has a drum over which weft winding work is done, getting power from a 0.25 hp electric motor. The innovator has made a special component, which rotates periodically due to the impulse provided by the flat bars with the help of its cutting edges.
