This crimping machine was used to create very fine gathers on items like caps, collars, cuffs and ruffs. The two fluted brass rollers are hollow so that heated iron rods could be placed inside to warm them. The strong iron frame could be bolted down onto a table to hold it steady while the handle was turned.
