What is a Mould and Deckle?
In papermaking, a mould and deckle is a set of frames with a screen in between. It is drawn through a bucket of a paper pulp water solution to form a sheet of paper. Current beginner mould and deckles are difficult to use because users struggle to secure two loose frames with a screen sandwiched in between.
How should mould and deckles be designed for beginners to easily grasp the frames together and take them apart?
