From the medieval interval, the fulling of cloth usually was undertaken in a water mill, acknowledged as a fulling mill, a walk mill, or a tuck mill. In Wales, a fulling mill is referred to as a pandy. In these, the cloth was beaten with wooden hammers, recognized as fulling shares. Fulling stocks were of two varieties, falling stocks (functioning vertically) that had been used only for scouring, and driving or hanging stocks. In each situations the machinery was operated by cams on the shaft of a waterwheel or on a tappet wheel, which lifted the hammer.

Driving stocks had been pivotted so that the ‘foot’ (the head of the hammer) struck the cloth practically horizontally. The stock had a tub keeping the liquor and cloth. This was fairly rounded on the side away from the hammer, so that the cloth steadily turned, guaranteeing that all elements of it had been milled evenly. Nonetheless, the cloth was taken out about each and every two several hours to undo plaits and wrinkles. The ‘foot’ was around triangular in shape, with notches to assist the turning of the cloth.

Ein wirklich sehr interessnater Stand:
Walken!
Bei der Tuchherstellung ist Walken ein Arbeitsvorgang, der mit Filz vorgenommen wird und den Zweck hat, durch Verfilzung der Fasern im Gewebe Tuch und tuchartige Stoffe zu erzeugen. Das Walken wurde seit dem Hochmittelalter in Walkmühlen ausgeführt, wobei unter fließendem Wasser mit großen, über ein Wasserrad angetriebenen Hämmern auf das Content eingeschlagen wird. Die ursprünglichere Methode, insbesondere Wolle zu walken, ist, den Filz in Tücher einzuschlagen und rollend zu kneten. Diese Methode wird bei zentralasiatischen Steppenvölkern noch heutzutage angewandt, indem große Rollen aus Filz von Pferden herumgeschleppt werden.
