It is thus described in a report, November, 1797: — The principle of this invention consists in the patente
ordinary use, but the temptation to allow the heavier portion of the crude naphtha, an article which commands a much lower price than oil, to flow into the tank designed for the latter is so great that many kinds of oil in the market are very dangerous, their vapors exploding at a much lower point. Instead of continuing the flow of naphtha into its proper tank until a gravity of 58° or 59° B. is attained, it is diverted into the burning-oil reservoir while yet as light as 63° to 65°. Dr. White of New Orleans found that one per cent of naphtha added to an oil which flashed at 133° Fah. caused it to flash at103° 2 per cent92° 5 per cent83° 10 per cent59° 20 per cent40° Ordinary kerosene, having a gravity of 47° B., flashes at 86° Fah. An oil which will not flash below 100° may be made by running off the naphtha to 58° B., and exposing the oil in shallow tanks to the sun or a strong light for a day or two.

One which is flat and strictly correct is known as a dead-parallel file. A round file without taper is a joint-file; used for filing the apertures in snuff and musical boxes, hinges, etc., for the reception of joint-wire.

Pulleys are susceptible of many other combinations, by increasing the number and varying the points of attachment to the load or to the support. See Brown's 507 Mechanical Movements. See tackle. In White's pulleys (k) the diameter of each sheave is proportioned to its rate of revolution, so that all may revolve in the same time. All the sheaves turn on the same pin, and each may constitute an independently revolving pulley, or they all may be cu
