Fulling mill. Fulling is a step in fabric production that involves pounding cloths to clean them. This engraving is plate 72 from an edition of 'Theatrum machinarum novum', a work by the German architect and engineer Georg Andreas Boeckler (1617-1687). This work included mechanical designs for mills and pumps powered by weights, water and wind. It was originally published in German in 1661 (Nuremberg), with two Latin editions published in 1662 (Nuremberg and Cologne). This engraving is from one of the 1662 Latin editions by the German printer Paul Furst.
