thus saving much oil, eliminating rapidwear of
the parts, and providing a simple and e?lcient
mechanism for accomplishing oscillation of the
doiier comb shaft.
Some of the'objects of the invention having
been stated, other objects will appear as the .de

is bolted to the top of frames I ll and I].
portion 30 has‘an uprising portion 3| and an
elevated horizontal portion 32. ‘Each oi‘the por

through in which is mounted the reduced‘, ends
33 and 34 of a comb shaft 35. This comb shaft
35 has a plurality of arms 36 thereon and on the
outer end of. same is fixedly [secured a doffer
comb 31.
The reduced portion 34 of shaft 35 nearest the
observer in Figures 1 and 2 has secured thereon
