The 'Kaft' is a two large pieces of wood placed on the 'room' of the Norias where the body of the Norias is installed on them.
It is installed on two Kafts to permit the body to rotate; it is the part responsible for issuing the Norias 'moan'.
The threshold is 16 pieces of wood which hold the core of the Norias, in addition to the nooses which connect the outer circle with the inner one; each two nooses are connected with a constraint.
The feathers are fixed on the head of each Radaen giving the Norias its rotation power and finally the doors are wide wood pieces fixed on each noose to give energy to the Norias.
The wood used in Norias industry is the walnut and the poplar due to their high resistance of humidity and high temperature.
Other kinds of wood, like the oak berries and fir, can be used for manufacturing some pieces of the body of the Norias.
Zaza pointed out that these pieces vary in size from 10cm to 10m in a way that makes their industry very complicated, particularly that it needs accuracy and balance when carrying out the body of the Noria because it is placed on a wood axis for rotation.
