Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: ...of the plate; a 16-"JH'T' penny nail should be driven into it through the plate. Raise the next 2x4 in like man-ner, building the plate on ahead two or three sections at a time. As soon as three or four 2x4's are in place, a p ie c e of light mate-rial, such as ordinary weather-boarding, should be bent to the form of a hoop and nailed to each 2x4, 4 or 5 feet above the foundation, with a 4-penny nail, spacing the studding with the same length of gauge as has been used at the top. These strips of weather boarding should be extended as the 2x4's are set until circle is completed. liaising-the Door Form. Since the door form is carefully plumbed before one begins to raise the 2x4's, little difficulty is experienced, as a rule, in having the whole structure stand perpendicular when the circle is complete. In order to have the segments of the plate unite properly, it will probably be necessary to loosen the braces, which were nailed on top before the circle was complete. After the parts of the plate have been brought together the braces should again be nailed in place, so that the scaffold and the studding may be securely tied together. A second hoop should be placed around the silo about halfway down from the top; and if the 2x4's are very crooked and badly out of line, it may be necessary to place still another hoop. The pieces of gas-pipe, which have previously been cut to the right length, should now be placed in each door box and wired to the ends of the rods across the door form. The 24-gauge expanded metal or metal lath is used in the construction of this silo. It comes in bundles, each bundle usually containing nine strips, 8 feet long and 18 inches wide. A bundle of this size contains 12 square yards and weighs 40% pounds. This metal more
