Not illustrated. 1909 edition. Excerpt: ... very much is left lor the chisel and file to complete. There are several special machines designed wholly or chiefly for the use of die sinkers, but much can be done by the ordinary tools in the shops. Templets are used to check the progress of the work, including those of sheet metal for local sections, and those which represent the actual forgings which have to be stamped. These are made of lead, or tin, or a first sample forging is prepared. Contact is insured by the transference of red lead from the templet to the recesses which are being cut. Reference has been made to the typing or hubbing process. It bears an essential resemblance to the operation of stamping medals and coins by a hard blow. Only the operation Is reversed, the die itself being produced by stamping it. while white hot. from a cold forging. It has the advantage cf being cheaper than cutting dies, and in circular outlines is accurate enough, but is not well adapted for intricate shapes. The spring swages are frequently made in this way. In obtaining circular shapes thus, the hub or type is rotated between each successive blow, so correcting any inaccuracies that might form. The edges are of necessity pioduced with a slight convexity, Fig. 26. But this is an advantage in producing circular forgings which are rotated in the dies. It is not necessary to have complete circles in such a case, because metal squeezed out laterally, and what would soon form a fin, becomes obliterated by the next blow when the rotation into a new position takes place. In one of the illustrations, Fig. 11, dowels are shown, which are inserted to serve as guides to secure the alignment of top and bottom dies. These are only used when the dies are not attached in any way to the anvil below, more
