Excerpt from Tappet and Dobby Looms: Their Mechanism and Management The object of this work - the greater portion of which originally appeared as a series of articles in Tie Textile Manufacturer - is to help those who are engaged in the weaving industry to obtain a fuller knowledge of the mechanism and management of the loom. At the same time it is hoped that the book will supply a much - needed addition to the scanty literature at present available on this particular branch of the manufacturing processes. A special feature of the subject-matter is the references to defects produced in fabrics during weaving, these being drawn from observations made by the author during his many years practical experience of the subject. The illustrations employed to elucidate the construction of the various motions are chiefly line drawings - drawn to scale - from well-known types of looms. The detailed descriptions of the motions have been expressly included for the sake of students following out a course of technical instruction - the author, as a teacher of textile technology, having experienced a long-felt want in this particular direction.
