Amazing Miniature Machine Successfully Makes Paper
FROM crude pulp to the unwinding of the finished rolls, this miniature paper-making machine is complete in every amazing detail.
A beater first cuts the pulp to shreds. The mass is then impregnated with 99 percent water and is passed over various screens and between rollers to shape the paper and eliminate moisture.
Sixteen feet long and two feet high, the machine turns out a four-inch roll of paper three feet long every minute. In comparison Modern Mechanix and Inventions uses enough paper in a year to cover a sidewalk 5000 miles in length.
