Mr Monkey in Stockport

"I'm not letting this machine do anything to MY fur!"

Mr Monkey and the fur grinder Mr Monkey watching the fur sorter Mr Monkey next to the fur cabinet

This machine has a spiked cone inside it, and does things to fur. The fur fibres are run through a few more sets of spikes, then into a big cabinet where they are blown about. Hairs that are too long for felt making fall to the floor, and a hatworker has to go into the cabinet and collect the lighter hairs from the grilles (this is not good for the lungs, as there are still lots of fibres floating around).
