Tossed Spindle and Other Textile Technology

Buxton's discussion of tossed spindles in Selected Canadian Spinning Wheels in Perspective: An Analytical Approach notes that the action of a tossed spindle is very much like the action of early powered spinning machines.

I notice that it's also similar to reeling silk, where the threads are passed over a hook or through a ring.
