MACHINE FOR SKIPPING

A skipping machine has just been placed on the market that not only turns the rope, but also records the number of "skips." The middle section of the base or platform, under pressure, starts the rope revolving, and this is continued so long as the intermittent jump is maintained. The two side posts suspend the rope at a convenient height, and oh the dial at the top of one of these is recorded the number of turns.
