The machine, in its general construction, Certain of the-dial. needles have longer is similar to that of' the prior patent, the verstems and shorter butts than others, these 'tical needle cylinder being represented at 1, long stemmed dial needles being acted upon 0 the needle dial at 2, the cylind'r cam box by a earn 7 of the dial cam plate so as to be I at 3, and the dial cam plate at 4.
