machine uses frames, threaded with a long length of candle wick. The
frame is repeatedly dipped into a tank of hot wax. Each time the
frame is raised, the wax coating on the wick is a little thicker.
When the wax coating is thick enough, the machine is switched off, the
frame removed, and the individual candles were cut from the frame.
This machine had been in use for a long time by the company. It was
invented by the present owner's father or grandfather.
