A later development was the automatic scutching machine, seen here operating in the "Weka" mill at "Miranui", which operated on the same principle as the hand type, but instead of the men holding the fibre, it was held by a grip after being thrown over an endless chain which carried one end of the fibre into the scutcher.

After it was scutched it was drawn out to alter the grip to the other end of the fibre.
