In the latter, owing to there being no definite standard, it is quite possible that the prices may be raised too high for competitive efficiency, or depressed to too low a point to recoup the workmen for the extra exertion and initiative induced by the very nature of piecework. In such work as that of rivetters, iron fitters, and platers and...

Page 120 - Pings of steel fitting the bore of the tube were screwed on to each end of a specimen ; these plugs were passed into the tube, the annular space around the specimen being filled in some cases with quick-burning powder and in others with gun-cotton air-spaced. On the charges being exploded through the vent the pings were driven violently out of the tube in opposite directions, each carrying one half of the specimen.

The ink was applied by a roller, which rose and fell with the irregularities of the prism; and the sheet was wrapped on another prism, so formed as to meet the irregularities of the type prism. One of these machines was erected for the university of Cambridge, and was a beautiful specimen of ingenuity and workmanship ; it was, however, too complicated, and the inking was defective, which prevented its success. Nevertheless, a great point was attained ; for in this machine...
Page 265 - This movement goes on without interruption ; the moment that one sheet descends from the hands of the delivering agent, and being carried vertically downwards, begins to move horizontally, space is left for another, which he immediately supplies, and in this manner he delivers to the machine at the average rate of two sheets every five seconds, and, the same delivery taking place at each of the eight cylinders, there are sixteen sheets delivered and printed every five seconds.
