First pic is White Heart (Red) cane stock, generally only produced once a year and the second picture is among the interesting machines you may see. This one, for larger size rocaille production, say 6/0-1/0, inspects that the bead are round or square (flat), and if bead is too flat its discarded. Often on a production run up to 70% is discarded.
