This machine, equipped with an electrical engine, was used to pass the thread from the skeins to the reels. The spooler unwound the threads from the spindles obtained from the spinning process and prepared them in the shape of a skein to fill the bitlles that supplied the yarn to the looms. Electrification emptied the factories of the line shafts and belts that were a hazard and the cause of many accidents and, after years of restrictions as a result of the Civil War (1936-1939), it significantly contributed to the increase in productivity.
