This invention relates to a method and means
for applying a conditioning liquid such as lubri
cants, dyes, tints, hydroscopic agents, and the like
to textile stocks and particularly the application
of oil or dyestuff or any conditioning agent to raw
textile stocks or textile blends in the course of
manufacture in the normal sequence of operations
incident to the ?nished product.
According to my invention, the stock is treated
while in lap or mass form and is subjected to the 10
bat form at Various points in its course to and
through the picking and opening machinery. ‘
Mounted on the upper frame members l4 and
i5 of the picker are standards [6 and I1 having
bearings l8 and it there-on in which is mounted
for oscillation a pipe 20. This pipe 20 has suit
able ?ns 2! on each side thereof which are
adapted to work in suitable grooves in bearing 18,
for example to prevent turning movement of the
pipe. The pipe 20 has rising from the top sur
