caused by appropriate gearing to make from 150 to 200 revolutions per minute, causing the stuff to pass between the cutters in the direction indicated by the arrows; a hood g is provided to prevent the pulp from being thrown out of the machine, and one side of this is a sieve h with a removable cover i, through which the foul water expelled from the pulp passes and is discharged through the opening k. See also half-stuff machine. Pulp-me′ter. (Paper-making.) An apparatus invented by Cowan of Valley Field, near Edinburgh, for measuring out a uniform and exact supply of pulp to the paper-machine, according to the width and thickness of the sheet of paper to be made. It consists of a cup having an adjustable slide, which may be set so as to deliver from a box connected with the pulp-chest and kept constantly filled with the exact quantity of pulp required for a sheet of given dimensions, thus securing uniformity of thickness. Pulp-mill. A machine for grinding paper pulp.

Canvas or sail-cloth is made in grades of quality and strength. Of the latter it is Nos. 1 to 8. The first number is the strongest, and is used for storm-sails; No. 8 for small sails and studdingsails. The seams of the cloth in a square sail are vertical. In a fore-and-aft sail they are parallel with the after-leach. In Cowan's patent (English) the seams are horizontal. The seams have also been made diagonal, with no improved effect, but rather otherwise. Some of the terms employed by sail-makers are, — Seaming: sewing the breadths together. Goring; cutting out the wedge-shaped pieces where the sail narrows. Tabling; putting on the strengthening strips around the edge, where the cringles are inserted. Sewing on the reef, belly, lining, and buntline bands. Roping; sewing on the bolt-rope. M
