Teagle Cutter
« on: Wednesday 31 January 18 00:57 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone enlighten me as to what a 'teagle cutter' did?  I assume it was something to do with weaving and that it was probably done by juniors.  Any ideas would be much appreciated

Teagle or Teazel?

I see Teazel Cutter as an occupation in the 1841 Census.
http://www.wiltshire-opc.org.uk/Items/Oaksey/Oaksey%20-%20Census%201841.pdf

Teazel | Define Teazel at Dictionary.com
www.dictionary.com/browse/teazel
any of several plants of the genus Dipsacus, having prickly leaves and flower heads. Compare teasel family. 2. the dried flower head or bur of the plant D. fullonum, used for teasing or teaseling cloth.

Cheers,
Westoe

In old script a lower case Z in one of its forms, can resemble a lower case G having a tail below the script line and this frequently being looped.

Oopsie  ;D

Many people cannot read my lower case F.

Very pretty with a loop top and bottom, like a little sideways bow.
I just can't break the habit of that formation ::)
