The part affected rests on a ham mock of course material. A vent-hole in the top controls, to a large extent, the heated air contained therein, which is also regulated by a thermometer. 'the use of gas is not entirely free from danger, especially when a high de gree of heat is desired, and I have had the toweling to scorch when using this apparatus and, at one time, to smoulder. However, odor and smoke from the vent gives warning enough concerning this danger. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
