Bobbin Winding Machine
Is used for filling the warper's bobbins with cotton thread. Fixed low at the front of the frame is a row of set skewers that hold the cops (ring tubes). At a higher level is the guide rod.
The cotton yarn passes through cleaning brushes that remove dust.
The guide rod moves up and down to distribute the yarn evenly onto the bobbins
