CONT

Le métier haute lisse se distingue du métier basse lisse par son fonctionnement à peine mécanisé et par sa charpente de bois dressée à la verticale. A part ses quatre montants et les traverses qui les relient, tout «l'appareillage» du métier haute lisse a pour fonction l'enroulement et la tension des fils de chaîne.
