SANSPAREIL AND QUARTER-SIZE CASES



This is without doubt one of the best Rule Cases yet designed. The walls and partitions are a trifle higher than
type high, so the rules are at all times protected; anything can drop, or be laid on the Case without touching rule.

It has compartments for all sizes from 1 to 9i ems, (varying by
ens), 'and from 10 to 42. (varying by ems), with an extra allowance for
small sizes; also an additional row for miters, which, when no miters
are carried, can be used for overflow on small sizes. For large fonts
of rule, running in lengths not usually included in fonts of labor-sav-
ing brass rule, it is especially valuable, and there is no Case to replace
it. It has become very popular and its use is constantly increasing.

The size of this Case is 141 x 15i inches 2 Cases fit into one stand-
ard Blank Case.

It is compact and every bit of space is utilized, thus insuring a
capacity that cannot be equaled by any Case on the market. The
cross partitions are one piece of wood from wall to wall, and they can-
not slip down or break ; the long downward partitions are durable,
and the general construction is substantial. It has a "New Depart,

Cases soon became apparent, and they are now designed for a variety of uses. In use the Quarter Cases
with contents can be carried about the office where the work is being executed. This is hardly possible
with a full-size Case heavily loaded. Their use preserves high priced material, facilitates its use, enables
the compositor to dp more and better work. Only one man can work at a full-size Case when filled. A
Blank Case filled with four Quarter Cases will accommodate four workmen by removing the Cases and
carrying the material to the work.

ELECTRIC -WELDED STEEL CHASES

Made from Silver-Gloss Steel








Cuts through the hard steel
with astonishing- ease.




Every bar of steel used in the manufacture of our Electric- Welded Silver-Gloss Steel Chases
is made up from a special grade of open hearth steel. This special mixture was compounded to
meet the peculiar conditions of electro-welding, which requirements are that the impurities
shall be very low, so that the steel shall weld well and also prevent what
is known as a congregation of impurities rendering the steel brittle and
liable to breakage, which happens when the impurities collect together.
In order to bring about the right mixture, the proper proportions of
carbon and manganese must be effected. Carbon imparts the property
of brittleness, therefore only a small percentage of carbon may be used.
It is also necessary to have manganese in the proper quantity for the
purpose of making it dense, close-grained, tough and strong. Sulphur
and phosphorus are great enemies of steel and the best steel contains
only very slight traces of these ingredients. Silver-Gloss steel con-
tains the proper proportions of carbon and manganese and is as free
from sulphur, phosphorus and other impurities as it is possible to make
it. After the steel is made it is
first hot drawn through dies to
approximately the size, then cold
drawn to the correct size. This
very process of drawing is a guar-
antee of strength of each and every
bar used by us as it takes a pull of

some 40,000 pounds to draw each bar through the dies. Any
bar that breaks in this drawing process is thrown aside as
defective. Therefore the secret of the Electric-Welded
Silver-Gloss Steel Chases lies, first, in the grade of steel used
and second in the method of welding In electric-welding
