eaving the thread by means of bobbins, pins, and spindles, as to produce the required pattern. Hood. 1. (Mechanics.) A dome-shaped projection or canopy over a discharging or receiving orifice n in Italy in the time of Martial. It attained its climax in Europe in the twelfth century. Hood′ing-end. (Shipbuilding.) The end of a hood or endmost plank of a complete strake. The hoodihe current depends upon the difference in temperature of the ascending and descending columns. Hood's heater. This is shown at A (Fig. 2593). Hot-water heating-apparatus on the low-pressure nemain's system was of the low-pressure kind, and this class of heaters has been much improved by Hood; see his Practical Treatise on the Warming of Buildings by Hot Water (London, third edition, 1855). Hood's apparatus for heating (B, Fig. 2593) had several variations, but the main features are similar to those of Bonnemain. It consisted of a boiler a and ascending pipe b c, with branches to
refrigerating space, and a trough with discharge-pipes runs around the outside wall at the bottom. Ice-sandal. Ice-san′dal. A clog or shoe to be worn over the boot, and having spurs on the sole to prevent slipping on ice. (Fig. 2654.) Hood's ice-saw. Ice-saw. A long saw with a weight at the lower end (beneath the ice), for cutting long kerfs in pond ice, to make a track for vessels, or to form long slices which are broken in blocks for storage. Ice-saws in the Arctic regions are made of 2/8 to 3/8 inch steel blades, 10 to 24 feet long. See h, Fig. 2658, ice-tools. Hood's ice-saw (English) is mounted on a sled, which is advanced a given distance during each cut, by means of a lever-dog. The saw is suspended from the end of a brake-lever, the weight suspended at the lower end giving the effective stroke, while the men at the brakes raise it between cuts. At each end of the saw is a link or clevis, by which it is attached to the brake-lever and the weight, r
