In issuing a New Edition of the
Price List of the various articles manufactured by us, we have
pleasure in pointing out to your notice that it is much more
complete, and is better classified and arranged, than any
heretofore presented. It has undergone an entire revision: A
GREAT REDUCTION HAS BEEN MADE in THE PRICES of many of the
articles, and in no case have any been increased.
This we have
been enabled to do by the progressive improvements in our
machinery, and the adaptation of the same to some of those
processes, which till now have been effected by uncertain, and
at the best, expensive hand labour.
The BOXWOOD RULES will all be found
to be made of well-seasoned Boxwood of good quality,
proportioned to the prices; and instead of having only a few
inches divided into sixteenths, as those usually made in the
trade, they are marked outside in eighths, and inside in
sixteenths the whole length of the rule.
The ENGINE DIVIDED STEEL RULES are
especially recommended for the fineness and accuracy of their
graduation, being marked from 1/8ths to 1/100ths of an inch, and
are invaluable to Engineers, Machinists, and to all who require
great exactness. The other Steel Rules (pages 48, 49) for
Smiths' use, will be found to be superior to those usually made.
The STEEL MEASURING TAPES, and the
METALLIC WIRED TAPES, will be found of
superior quality, being marked by the most modern and approved
In conclusion: Our aim will be, as
it has been, to adopt every improvement in machinery, or
otherwise, and to still progress and excel in the quality of all
goods manufactured by us; and whenever reductions in prices of
materials, or other means enable us, we shall offer to our
friends, as we have hitherto done, every advantage in our power,
and thus afford them greater inducements and facilities for the
disposal of our goods with mutual credit and advantage.
