The spinning-frames tossed it off their spindles.
"The Landloper" by Holman Day
The model frame shown at the fair did its work admirably well, spinning yarns as high as No.

The final machine used in the conversion of rove to the size of yarn required is termed the spinning frame.
"The Jute Industry: From Seed to Finished Cloth" by T. Woodhouse and P. Kilgour
After cotton, the inventions of the spinning jenny and the water- powered frame were applied to wool.
"Our Legal Heritage, 5th Ed." by S. A. Reilly
Arkwright's experience with regard to his spinning-frame was similar.

It was an angled prism of crystal, star-shaped, set in a frame which could get the star spinning like a solidopic.
"The Door Through Space" by Marion Zimmer Bradley
He is to drive us a twenty-mile spin to the beginning of Frame Woods.
"The Love Affairs of Pixie" by Mrs George de Horne Vaizey
Spinners are small girls who walk up and down an aisle before a spinning-frame and piece up the threads which are forever breaking.
"The Bishop of Cottontown" by John Trotwood Moore
This sliver is wound on a bobbin, and taken from the card to the mule spinning frame.
"Textiles" by William H. Dooley

In poetry:

Love built a stately house: where Fortune came:
And spinning phansies, she was heard to say,
That her fine cobwebs did support the frame,
Whereas they were supported by the same:
But Wisdome quickly swept them all away.
"The World" by George Herbert

After you click to play a video, place your cursor inside the frame and drag it left or right to spin around a complete 360-degree view.
Rather than spinning horizontally (and boringly) as do most convertibles , Dell's screen flips vertically in its metal frame, snapping out of the invisible magnetic stays and locking back into place with a solid, confident click.
Over the weekend, the time frame apparently dawned on my mother, because she has gone into, like, super spin drive.
GP-B will be the first test of frame dragging, the theory that a massive spinning body twists the fabric of space-time.

In science:

We thus can naturally understand the proton “spin crisis” because there is no need to require that the sum of the quark spin be equal to the spin of the proton in the infinite momentum frame, even if the vector sum of the quark spin equals to the proton spin in the rest frame.
Parton Sum Rules and Nucleon Structure Functions
L = R d3 ~p[q↑ (p) − q↓ (p)] being the net spin vector sum of quark flavor q parallel to the proton spin in the rest frame.
Parton Sum Rules and Nucleon Structure Functions
Thus one sees that the quantity ∆q is better to be interpreted as the net spin polarization in the infinite momentum frame if one properly considers the relativistic effect due to internal quark transversal motions.
Parton Sum Rules and Nucleon Structure Functions
The presence of preferred frame effects induces a new type of tensorial coupling between the magnetic field and the spin described by Γij .
Testing the Equivalence Principle in the Quantum Regime
Indeed, in accord with Eq.(34b), this spin (or coordinate axes of a proper Hermean reference frame) will precess with respect to a distant standard of rest such as quasars or distant galaxies.
