It is a type of rounded section bead core, formed of a central ring-shaped closed core, around which a reel of thread whose diameter is less than that of the core is wound helicoidally until the central wire is completely covered. Bead core of this type is also prepared without the central thread core.
A frame on which hose is wound, now chiefly used for "booster" or small hose (3/4- or l-inch hose) (19 or 25 mm) supplied by a water tank on the apparatus; also, a hand-drawn 2-wheel frame for 2-1/2 inch (64 mm) hose used in industrial plants.
1. See also hank. 2. The cylindrical former, usually flanged, suitable for use with domestic sewing machines, on to which sewing thread is wound. 3. The revolving drum, mill or swift of a section warping machine. Note: One end of the reel is conical in order to accommodate the increasing diameter of each section as it traverses laterally. (See also warping mill.)
1. An unsupported coil (e.g., approximately 135cm in circumference) composed of wraps of yarn or sliver and wound on a reeling machine with a cross-wound pattern that allows the resulting assembly of strands to be leased (see leasing).
The reel originated around 1750 in Scotland and the Irish dance masters brought it to full development. The music is 4/4 time and it is danced at a relatively fast tempo (ONE-two-three-four). Both men and women dance the reel. For women, it is a light, rapid soft shoe dance that allows for plenty of leaping and demands an energetic performance from the dancer. Men often dance the reel in what appears to be hard shoes without the toe tap up front. Often a feis will include a special competition in the treble reel. Here, dancers in a single line dance right and left leg. Some separate out age groups, some combine the age groups into one competition. Usually, audiences are extremely enthusiastic in their appreciation for this exciting performance.
The reel is a folk dance type as well as the accompanying dance tune type. In Scottish country dancing, the reel is one of the four traditional dances, the others being the jig, the strathspey and the waltz, and is also the name of a dance figure (see below).
The spinning wheels which contain the slot machine's symbols. On video style slot machines the reels are simulated. In either case they are there for the visual effect and used to display the result of the digital reels which are actually stored in computer memory and 'spun' by a random number generator.
A circular basket, displaying a series of symbols, that rotates around a motorized central hub. The combination of three or more such reels set spinning at once, then stopping at randomly assigned spots on each reel, constitutes a basic slot game. The appearance of a mechanically operated stepper reel can be simulated on video games.
a wheel inside a slot machine window upon which the slot machine symbols are displayed. The number of reels per slot machine may vary. Most have three, but some will have two reels, four reels or even more. The greater the number of reels on a machine the harder it will be to hit a jackpot
