The weight is usually hung inside, as the centrifugal foice of a rapidly revolving carrier tends to prevent an outside carrier dropping quickly enough to prevent kinking when the thread slackens. The weight is thus also more protected from dirt, but this arrangement makes the threading somewhat more troublesome. Fig. 11 shows a carrier without bobbin, but when a bobbin is placed on it the thread is first run through the eye near the center of the standard, then through the stop-motion eye, then up through the eye at the top of the standard, down through an eye in the lever e, through the tension-weight eye, and then through the eye at the top of the hollow spindle, whence it goes to the braid former. This makes a total of six eyes to be threaded.
