I was mixing it up with Crompton’s original Spinning Mule, and it’s predecessor the Spinning Jenny, they carried on the name Mule as Crompton’s devise was more of a finished article just needed tweaking and enlarging, up dating and so on but I think – there he goes again – the basic principals and processes are the same as his original.
Never was good at names could so easily have called it a Jenney!!
