What does a Pick-Pulling Machine Operator do?

Tends machine that pulls false selvages and waste filling floats from looped pile fabric: Lifts roll of cloth into feeding position and pins end of cloth to leader in machine. Positions false selvage between feed rollers on each side of machine. Starts machine and observes flow of cloth to detect oblique twist due to unequal tension on cloth. Depresses pedal to release tension on leading selvage and allow lagging selvage to catch up. Doffs rolls of cloth and full boxes of filling waste.
