ing-board.Drawing-pen. Drawing-compass.Drawing-pencil. Drawing-paper.Drawing-slate, etc. 4. (Metal-working.) The operation of hammering, rolling, or drawing through a die, by which a bar or rod of metal or a wire is extended in length to form a rod, tube, or plate. Drawing-bench. Drawing—awl. (Leather.) A leather-worker's awl, having a hole near the point in which the thread is inserted and pushed through in sewing, etc. Draw′ing—bench. An apparatus invented by Sir John Barton, formerly comptroller of the British Mint. Strips of metal are brought to an exact thickness and width by being drawn through a gaged opening, made by two cylinders in the required proximity and prevented from rotating. The cylinders are fastened in a head a at one end of a bench, and the sharpened end of the metallic strip is thrust through them so as to be grasped by a pair of jaws on a carriage b, which is retracted by an endless chain. When the strip has passed through the thr
e to time, retaining its main features, and was still in use in London till 1832, when it was superseded by a more compact form, which was adapted to be drawn by horses, and from this period dates the efficient fire-brigade system of London. Barton's engine. Newsham's fire-engine was a side-brake doublecylinder engine, mounted on four wheels, and with an air-chamber, goose-neck, and suction-pipe. The work on the brakes was assisted by men on the box, who threw their weight upon treadleeing placed in the cylinders and air-chamber. By this means they were easily reached, without the disconnection of the main portions of the pump. Another form of fire-engine was invented by Bramah, 1793, improved by Rowntree and eventually by Barton. The engine of the latter (A, Fig. 1989) was on the vibrating principle. To the levers h h was attached a radial piston b, which oscillated in the cylindrical chamber. As the piston moved in one direction, a valve beneath this piston opened to
by a single movement of the valve-lever at the front. The platform moves at a speed of from 10 to 150 feet per minute, and has safety-ratchets which instantly lock it to the standards if the rope break. The drum on which the wire rope is wound has a spiral groove in which successive coils of the rope are kept separate. The car stops automatically at certain limits, or by hand at intermediate points.

en put in a canvas bag with emery, oil, putty-powder, and softsoap, and rolled to and fro under pressure until they become bright. The better class of needles have their eyes drilled. The final process is polishing the points, which is effected first by a rotating hone and afterward by a buff-wheel. Nee′dle-mak′ing ma-chine′. Of late years machines have been introduced by which needles are formed from the roll of wire without the intervention of hand labor. Fig. 3311 illustrates Barton's machine. In this, the wire is fed forward to a rack M, and cut to length by the cutter H, being received in a groove of the bed-piece below the rack. The rack has a reciprocating movement both longitudinally and vertically; the latter serving to pick up the blank from each groove in the bed-plate, and the former to advance it to the next groove. At each groove it is subjected to the action of a die or punch, which dies successively form the groove for the eye and punch the eye. These <

During the course of Maudslay's experiments, his friend, Mr., afterward Sir J. Barton, succeeded in originating screws of equal correctness, by employing a chain or flexible band for traversing the tool. Maudslay made many improvements in the system of taps and dies, and, in the opinion of Holtzapffel, between the years 1800-1871. 117,357WilderJuly 25, 1871. 118,671AntrimSept. 5, 1871. 121,043DemarestNov. 21, 1871. 126,199GibbsApr. 30, 1872. 126,488PrattMay 7, 1872. 127,114SpeirsMay 21, 1872. 128,850ButterfieldJuly 9, 1872. 131,166HindsSept. 10, 1872. 131,324BartonSept. 17, 1872. 132,081HopkinsOct. 8, 1872. 135,445RoggenburgerFeb. 4, 1873. 137,007Lincoln et al.Mar. 18, 1873. 139,962KeithJune 17, 1873. 140,438SmithJuly 1, 1873. 140,584Lincoln et al.July 8, 1873. 146,628WoodruffJan. 20, 1874. 150,787P
