The plate and the brass contact semicircle are then secured in position by two nuts screwed to the rod. To the free end of the angle plate is soldered a flexible conductor, say 8 inches in length. The hard-rubber block is then screwed to the top of the condenser box with %-inch wood screws, the holes having been countersunk so that the heads of the screws will be flush with the surface of the block.

The spiral springs rest therefore between the shoulders of the springs on the one side and the hard-fiber plate on the other, and in this way it keeps the ends of the pins projecting beyond the face of the hardrubber block A inch when the switch is open. The fiber plate is attached to the bottom of the rubber block by four machine screws, % inch in diameter and % inch long. When the semicircular brass contact plate is turned by means of the handle, its edge, which strikes the contact pins, being beveled, forces them down % of an inch against the action of the springs, the latter serving to force the pins upward with considerable pressure, making good contacts with the rotating contact plate.
