The Rope/Cord maker with this set up can twist left or right, but the strand bundles and the finished rope/cord have the same twist. You might be able to adapt this device to you need. If you need to twist one group on way and the another group the other way. You might be able weave the chain around the sprockets to achieve that. It would probably require an additional idler sprocket. See photo. Or you could lock the Tail Stock hook so it can't spin. Spin the strand groups clock or counter clock wise. Unlock the Tail Stock hook and then by using the Tail Stock hook you could hand twist the strand groups in the opposite direction.
Thank you for your comment. I can also make rope/cord very quickly. Hand twisted lets say in a survival situation. I had very specific needs to meet, see photos in step 11. I met my need for museum quality and exact specifications perfectly. So there are utilitarian needs and artistic need. I can do either with this device.
