Then take a plain cylinder B, made of light boiler-iron, 36" long, and of the right diameter to fit the top of ladle. This cylinder should have a 2" hole at one end for tuyere pipe, and should be daubed up same as a ladle, and dried ready for use. Place the cylinder top of ladle, daub up around the joint, and add fuel until you have a good bed 6" or 7" above tuyeres. Put on such iron as you wish to use, and as much as you need to pour off the piece.

Having no such pattern, nor forms for sweeping such a mould, I made the piece in a creditable manner by the means shown in the accompanying sketch. First I got a pattern for a draw-pulley rim, which was about " thick, 6" wide, and 36" diameter, having but little draught. Around this pulley-rim I fitted a set of cores, a section of which is shown at e. In the under side of these cores was a recess, to form the bottom flanges of the pipe. I also had a piece of a circular flange pattern fitted to the outside of the rim pattern, which piece of flange pattern was about one-sixth of...show more
