The Temple Institute: A Day in the Life of the Holy Temple: The "Muchni" of Ben Katin

The "Muchni" of Ben Katin

What was it that the others priests heard? It was the "muchni of Ben Katin," the sound of a wooden wheel especially devised by one of the High Priests of the Second Temple by the name of Ben Katin. This mechanism was a large pulley shaped like a wheel by which the entire laver was lowered into a well at night, and pulled up in the morning filled with water.
