Excerpt from Draw Frames and Fly Frames: Being a Practical Treatise on the Above Machines
IN design and treatment this book is essentially a companion volume to the Author's previous treatise upon Self-acting Mules. While it is hoped that the subject matter will be of interes... t and profit to students generally, it is more especially intended to benefit those who are directly concerned in the practical working of the machines under discussion, whether as overlookers, fitters, managers, masters, or in other capacity. Other writers have treated fully and ably of the purely descriptive and mechanical side of the subject, and, therefore, although such treatment is by no means herein omitted, yet attention has been more particularly directed to such points as are concerned, more or less, in obtaining the best results from the machines in their actual manipulation. The Author's greatest aim has been to make the book of practical utility to persons actually in the trade.
Thanks are due to those firms who have kindly assisted in the matter of the illustrations, and to one or two gentlemen who have assisted in other ways.
