What does a Felt Hanger do?

Installs rolls of untreated roofing felt on feedrack and prepares roll for continuous asphalt-saturating process with aid of another worker: Inserts spindle in mandrel, pushes roll onto feedrack, and secures holding devices over spindle ends. Cuts away roll covering, using knife, threads end of felt through rollers, and splices end to end of previous roll with tape and hot iron. Inspects felt as roll unwinds and repairs defects, such as holes and tears, using tape and iron.
