A Shuttle for a Late Transverse Shuttle Machine
This shuttle belongs to a 1930s Frister and Rossmann Transverse Shuttle machine. Viewed from this side it looks just like the shuttle for a vibrating shuttle machine.
However, the other side is flat, so it can fit in the narrow shuttle carriage.
This type of shuttle is a hybrid shuttle. It fits into the same sized space as the open sided boat shuttle which was used on older TS machines, but the flat side is closed. Loading the bobbin and threading the shuttle is done in exactly the same way as with the bullet shaped shuttles for Vibrating Shuttle machines.
