Page 156 - Take the various lengths from 2 to 3 to 4 to 5 to 6 to 7 to 8 to A in plan and place them as shown by similar numbers on the horizontal line ab (Fig.

Page 142 - EF, the point 6' on EF to be placed 1 inch from the margin line. Now take the various distances of the dotted lines in plan as 6' to 5, 5' to 4, 4' to 3, 3' to 2, and 2' to 1, and place them on the line EF as shown by similar numbers. Now from the small figures 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 on the line EF, erect lines, which intersect by lines drawn from similarly numbered intersections on 1-6 in elevation, parallel to EF, thus obtaining the points 1°, 2°, 3°, 4°, and 5°. Then draw lines from 1° to 2',...

Authorities Consulted THE editors have freely consulted the standard technical literature of America and Europe in the preparation of these volumes. They desire to express their indebtedness particularly to the following eminent authorities whose well-known works should be in the library of every one connected with building.

Page 95 - Fig. 29, which intersect by an arc struck from 7 as center and with 7"-6T in (B) in Fig. 27 as radius. Then using 7-5 in plan as radius, and 7 in Fig. 29 as center, describe the arc 5, which intersect by an arc struck from 6 as center and with 6v-5

Page 87 - In its proper position above the plan construct the side elevation, making ED 2 inches high, and draw the line F D. Then will FED be the side elevation. Divide the arc AC into equal spaces as shown by the small figures 1 to 5. For the pattern use FD as radius, and with D in Fig. 21 as center strike the arc 1 5. From 1 draw a line to D and step off on 1-5 the same number of spaces as contained in AC in plan in Fig. 20, as shown by similar figures in Fig. 21. Draw a line from 5 to D. Then will 1-5-D...

Page 125 - And on and after July first, eighteen hundred and ninety-three, the same and no other shall be used in determining duties and taxes levied by the United States of America on sheet and plate iron and steel.

Page 81 - As the circle is in the center of the square, making the four corners symmetrical, it is necessary only to divide the one-quarter circle into a number of equal parts as shown by the small figures 1, 2, 2, 3, from which draw lines to the apex B. Complete the elevation as shown by IJ K L. Now using B as center, and radii equal to B 1 and B 2 in plan, describe arcs intersecting AB at 1 ' and 2

Page 296 - For the development of the hexagonal prism, extend the line 4" 1" as shown by HJ, upon which place the stretchout of twice the number of spaces contained in the half section F, as shown by similar figures on the stretchout line H J. From these points, at right angles to HJ, draw lines as shown, which intersect by lines drawn at right angles to the line of the prism from intersections ly to 4v, thus obtaining the points of intersection 1X to 4X.
