Content : Title from folder.

Content : Written on border: "1877" Printed on border: "Slasher. A sizing-machine for warp-yarns. The yarns are received from a number of rollers on the right, but two of which are shown in the engraving. They are then sized, brushed, and dried, the latter by passing over and under large heated cylinders. The name slasher originated as a playful term to indicate the much greater rapidity of the machine as compared with the ordinary warp-dresser." Includes additional text.
