Definitions for "Cones"
Photoreceptor cells in the retina of the eye that are responsible for color vision and visual acuity.
visual receptors of the vertebrate retina that can distinguish different wavelengths of the visual spectrum and is especially sensitive to bright light (Morris 1992).
Photoreceptor cells that have cone-shaped outer segments and convey color information in bright light.
Keywords:  pyrometric, peephole, kiln, glaze, melt
Pyrometric cones are composed of clay and glaze material, designed to melt and bend at specific temperatures. By observing them through a small 'Peep Hole' in the kiln it is possible to ascertain the exact conditions in the kiln. Cones are a better indicator than temperature alone as the degree of glaze melt is a combination of time and temperature (“heat work”), thus a fast firing needs to go to a higher temperature to get the same results as a slow firing to a lower temperature.
(Pyrometric). Made of ceramic materials, these cones are placed in a kiln where they can be viewed by the potter through spy- or peepholes in the walls or door of the kiln. They are calculated to measure the heat work of the firing (temperature and duration) and are graded to soften and melt to indicate to the potter that his clay and glazes have reached their maturity. Final temperature is designated by cone number, e.g., cone 4, cone 9.

Keywords:  cohns, pinus, coniferous, bracts, pine
cohns Structures from coniferous plants which contain seeds.
A mass of ovule-bearing (seed), pollen-bearing scales or bracts in trees of the pine family (Pinus), on a somewhat elongated axis. A pine cone is an example of a cone.
Threads are wound on cones or spools with a precision wind. Most cones today are made of plastic that can be recycled. Industrial sewing threads are generally wound on larger put-ups or cones with 6,000 yds., 12,000 yds., etc.

Keywords:  ripcords, marker, diameter, yarns, nose
Refers to a package that has a greater base diameter than nose diameter. Generally, used for vertical yarn presentation to a machine. Primarily used for Marker yarns and sometimes Ripcords.
