SPINNING MACHINE.

This invention relates to a spinning maing rollers 22'are' arranged in front of the chine in which the fibres are sucked, by a funnel mouth 13. funnel, into a hollow conical body which has The operation is as follows spiral-shaped grooves and which terminates As the pulleys 6 are loosely mounted on .in a point leading to the mouth of the funthe shafts 2, which consists of screw spin- 60 nel.
