ope to be superscribed. Nordyke, March 1, 1859. The envelopes on an endless conveyer are fed beneath the forms which are fed upon one track and discharged upon another, being subjected at a given point to the action of a pressure-roller. carpenter, May 5, 1857. The forms are placed in pockets in the periphery of a wheel. The news- paper being held above the form, the platen is depressed by a treadle and the impression obtained. On releasing the treadle the spring raises the platen, ants of a framing of wroughtiron tubular ribs B B, with external coils of steel wire a a, and surrounding casings of india-rubber b b. Corrugated plates c c confine the tubes together, and serve as attachments for the inner and outer skins c d. Carpenter's armor. carpenter's Ship's Armor, May 23, 1865. In this device the middle plates, of steel or wroughtiron, have dovetailed projections fitting into corresponding grooves in their outer facings, which, as well as the inner backingplates, a

When a board is placed edgeways in the vise e, its bottom edge may rest on a pin m, which is placed in either one of the vertical series of holes in the post. Carpenter's bench. Bench-camps. Bench-clamp. A jaw-tool attached to a workbench for holding an article to be operated on in place. The bench-clamp is shown on a painting in Herculaneum, where it is used to dog a timber to a bench while it is ed vertically from the hole by throwing the rack at the side in gear with a wheel on the crank-shaft, and rotating the latter. The rack is thrown in and out by an eccentric; an arrangement patented by Stanley and Johnson, September 12, 1865. Carpenter's boring-machine. Boring-machines of various kinds are in use in bedstead, furniture, and other manufactories. In some cases the bits or augers are arranged in gangs in a gate or slide, which is slipped forward towards the work, making a w

This, in a somewhat clumsy form, has been known for centuries under the name of the Chinese windlass, and one was found by the allied English and French armies to be in use for raising one of the drawbridges in the city of Pekin. It was described by Dr. Carpenter in his Mechanical philosophy, etc., 1844. The chain winds over two drums of different diameters, winding on to one as it unwinds from the other; the effect gained is as the difference between the two, the smaller the difference the greater the power and the less the speed.

liquity that the first or coarsest band appears red, the second is orange, the third yellow, the fourth green, the fifth blue, the sixth indigo, and the seventh violet. Viewed with a suitably high power these bands are seen simply as groups of fine black lines, the distances of which from center to center can readily be measured by a micrometer.
