This strip requires no explanation, and is held to its work by three -ir. steel grub screws, which may be fitted to the front slide at this stage, their positions being obtained from Fig. 2. The stem and inrer slide should now be machined up to the dimensions shown at Fig. 5, and in doing this it will be found advantageous to get the bottom lace of the stem true first, and then square everything up fiom that.
