383. Represents the principal elements of machinery for dressing cloth and warps, consisting of two rollers, from one to the other of which the yarn or cloth is wound, and an interposed cylinder having its periphery either smooth-surfaced or armed with brushes, teasels, or other contrivances, according to the nature of the work to be done. These elements are used in machines for sizing warps, gig-mills for dressing woolen goods, and in most machines for finishing woven fabrics.


In our animation the turn ratio and direction of the rollers is conjectural.
