The History and Technology of Waveform Molding: Reproducing and Using Moxon's Waving Machine. Jonathan Thornton. 202, WAG postprints, Miami, Florida.

Wooden Artifacts Group Postprints Archive. Ever wonder what Joseph Moxon was talking about in Mechanick Exercises when it came to the waveform molding machine?

After having bought a copy of the Toolemera press Moxon (which, if you haven't, you really should consider) and seen the plate of this peculiar machine, you most likely were left wondering if this was a fanciful invention or the product of a fevered dream.

Jonathan Thornton of the Wooden Artifacts Group wrote up a demonstration of his recreation of the machine. Never let it be said that the 17th Century craftsman was anything but creative.
