Page 285 - The twist-test will be made as follows: The wire will be gripped by two vises, one of which will be made to revolve at a speed not exceeding one revolution per second. The twists thus given to the wire will be reckoned by means of an ink mark which forms a spiral on the wire during torsion, the full number of twists to be visible between the vises.

Other causes also introduce irregularities which interfere with the constancy of a line. The wires are continually subject to accidents of various kinds, many of which tend to produce variable resistance. Now what effect has this variation of the resistance of the line-wire upon duplex working, and how is it provided for?...

Hence early efforts were made to replace the hand-worked key by some mechanical contrivance which would not only remove the defects inherent to manual labour, but would secure precision in the formation of the characters, accuracy in the despatch of messages, and speed in transmission. Bain in the year 1846 was the first to propose this. He punched broad dots...
