The Progressive Party Is Born
On the evening of June 22, 1912, former President Theodore Roosevelt asked his supporters to leave the floor of the Republican National Convention
The Republican Progressives promised to increase federal regulation and protect the welfare of ordinary people.
Roosevelt maintained that President William Howard Taft had allowed fraudulent seating of delegates in order to capture the presidential nomination (Pre Trump in 1912)

Progressivism is a political and social term that refers to ideologies and movements favoring or advocating changes or reform,
usually in a statist or egalitarian direction for economic policies (government management) and liberal direction for social policies (personal choice).
Progressivism is often viewed in opposition to conservative ideologies.

After the Strap Drill Came the Bow Drill Chapter-9

WHEREAS
the Strap Drill usually depended upon hand pieces, (often the teeth of a bear), attached to the ends of the thongs, to facilitate the pulling, the Bow Drill marks a step in advance in the art of drilling, due to the mechanical principle of the bow.

The Bow Drill consists of four parts-the shaft, the headpiece, the bow, and its strap. Except for the bow it is identical with the Strap Drill. The U. S. National Museum contains a great variety of Bow Drills, gathered chiefly along the Alaskan Coast.
The simplest of Bow Drills are those from Alaska, which are made from the ribs of deer, and are about 18 inches long,
seven-eighths of an inch broad and one-fourth of an inch thick, upon which are carved animals or men not unlike certain carvings from the caves of France.

There is much to be said regarding the Bow Drill, and the various points will be taken up in order. The picture on this page (which is a photo-graph of one of the wax figure life-size exhibits in the American Museum of Natural History, New York City) illustrates a common use of the Bow Drill by an Esquimo. Note that the shaft is held by a mouthpiece, held between the teeth of the operator.., The jar on the teeth, caused by this method, naturally must • be anything but pleasant.

Today 19121 24 to 42-in. Heavy Pattern Upright Drilling Machine The spindle has eight speeds, a ball thrust bearing and a quick advance and return. It is made of high carbon steel, is counter-balanced, and is driven by gears which are planed theoretically correct. The Frame consists of a deep generously ribbed base, a large accurately ground column, a shape-ly gear guarded yoke, a stiff well placed back brace, and a simple conveniently located belt shifter.

Many of them have flanged ends of generous proportions to support the ground hub surfaces of the gears.

Right Off the Machine Ready to Run
There were no "ifs" about it, they simply had to have helical gears in the plant in which the gears shown on the opposite page are made. It seems, too, they had to run up against all sorts of trouble in cutting them. The gears never came off the machines they were formerly using accurate enough to be run without a lot of expensive fussing over them also with-out numerous rejections in assembling and testing.
Now, they use Helical Gear Shapers and their worries are ended—really ended. The gears cut on the Helical Gear Shaper come right off the machine ready for service. Give credit for this accuracy to the two outstanding features of the Helical Gear Shaper: First, the helix angle is absolutely fixed—Second, the helical cutter is ground after hardening.

Scraped Bearings

Cross section through bed, showing carriage

ALIGHT bridge will answer for light cuts on large diameters . with the tool point directly above the front shear. But stresses are of a very different sort when the lathe is under a heavy cut on a small diameter.

The illustration shows the position of tool and compound rest on the 24" Patent Head Lathe when taking a 15 H.P. cut on work of 5" diameter. Heavy arrow indicates direction of pressure due to cut. Note the large bearing against the top and inside of bed directly in line with the tool thrust, in addition to the full length bearings of carriage upon front and rear V's. This extra bearing gives a solid support to the bridge just where it is needed, and positively prevents deflection or distortion even under the heaviest cuts. The Lodge & Shipley Machine

Give Longer Life In Alignment Engine Lathes

Longitudinal section through tailstock and bed

THE tailstock is massive in its proportions and has a long bearing on the bed. It is so shaped as to allow the compound rest to be set at 90 degrees when using the tool on small diameters. Suit-able screws are provided for setting over for taper work, and the base has a two-inch index graduated to sixteenths of an inch.

A device consisting of two plug clamps, is used to lock the tailstock spindle. This is accomplished without throwing it out of line and does away with the faulty construction of splitting the tailstock barrel. The design of the tailstock barrel is such as to give a large bearing surface and long travel to spindle. The bolts for clamping the tailstock to the bed extend to the top of the barrel where the nuts are most easily ac-cessible, and because of this construction the whole tailstock is drawn down solidly against the bed.

Management How The Flat Turret Lathe

Line Between Excessive
The dividing line between excessive and insufficient stock must be drawn in each individual case. The amount of capital tied up in raw material, supplies, stock in process and finished product should not be greater than that which is necessary to get the greatest output per dollar of investment. There should be a constant supply of material throughout the entire work. The stock in process should flow through the plant in a rapid, thin stream, but with no greater quantity than absolutely necessary to insure a steady supply for all the workers, including assembling and selling workers. Yet, in spite of these true economic principles, there are many plants whose buildings and immense stock • carried represents three times the necessary investment. In these plants capital is often tied up in ways that actually throttle the output of the entire business. Furthermore, this is frequently done by increasing the portion of the investment that is irrevocably tied to the existing product, thus not only reducing the earning power of each dollar invested, but also increasing the hazard by tying the capital to the present product, which soon may be unsuited to the market demand. One of the most common errors in this respect is the one that regards the reduction of the labor cost as the paramount consideration. While the net cost per piece is natur-ally an important element it should neither eclipse the question of profit per dollar invested, nor the risk of the capital tied up. For what is the gain if the means for reduction of the net labor cost re- Jones & Lamson Machine Company

The Case of a Man Who Tried to Win $5.22 and Failed

He was a big fellow too, and thought he had an easy proposition before he started in. But he lost because the Allen Safety Set Screw cannot be broken by human strength. Here's the story: Our salesmen carry a test block with them, and when they show the Allen Safety Set Screw to machine men they invite all manner of tests. One of our men was showing the screw to a superintendent of a large
Jersey plant and in the course of his argument, the superintendent's big husky assistant came along. When asked what he thought of it, he replied that it was like all others and they all break. Our representative laughed and said he was instructed by the office to give five dollars to any man who broke one of our screws in a fair test. Then he went on talking to the superintendent. A minute later they heard the big fellow working at a vise. Turns out he was putting the
The Allen Safety Set Screw
to the test. From experience with other screws he thought the five dollars would be his with one turn of the wrench. But he tugged and pulled, he put all of his strength into it, and finally came over and admitted that it would take more than his strength to even make a mark on the screw. The Allen Safety Set Screw is a better kind of screw—it may look like some screws you have seen, but the similarity ends right there. The Allen is made from a High Test Steel Bar, by a Patented Process, which strengthens the metal over 30%. It will not upset or mushroom in the hole, it will not break, it can always be taken out easily. The screw will stand all the wrench will stand and more. We invite you to test this screw, test it in any way you want to, put any amount of pressure on it, and watch it hold its own. We will gladly send you samples for the test, because we know the result of any test you make, will show you that here at last is the safe screw, the screw that will put an end to set screw troubles and delays.

RUGGEDNESS-SIMPLICITY
Two more features in which SKF Double Row Self-Aligning Ball Bearings are supreme. Machines seldom operate under ideal conditions, hence it is important in designing that hard knocks from severe service and possible abuse at the hands of careless or inexperienced workmen be taken into consideration. SKF Self-Aligning Ball Bearings best meet these requirements for many reasons. First, their mountings can be simple, strong, inexpen-sive, with liberal provis-ion for lubrication; and the bearings themselves can be perfectly sealed against dust, dirt, grit and other injurious agents. Second, their capacity is ample Our double row construction distributes the load to best to meet severe overloads. possible advantage.

Third,
our provision within the bearing itself for absolute automatic and instantaneous self-alignment compensates for shaft spring, completely eliminating the necessity for an aligning cradle or ball seat, usually required in ordinary journals. Fourth, the simple one piece retainer of Swedish Lancashire steel leaves nothing within the bearing that can work loose to cause noise or failure. Fifth, races and balls of the highest grade of Swedish crucible steel, uniformly hard throughout. Sixth, a minimum number of parts assures extreme durability Machine builders who want higher efficiencies, greater output and reduced lubrication and attendance costs can profitably investigate SKF Bearings. Making the change from babbited or other power consuming bearings invariably effects a logical improvement guarantees service, long life and absolute reliability. Tell us your side of the bearing story and our engineers will solve the problem. Write for our literature.

Slocomb Center Drills

Many Center Drills Break because the largest chips from the countersink clog the small-er chips from the drill point. As a result the drill point breaks off. In making Slo-comb Center Drills we have milled them so as to have plenty of room for all the chips to get out and not clog. This has proved a valuable point as it has resulted in less breakage.

LETS GO AMERICAN MACHINIST-Section Vol. 56, No. 1
LET'S START RIGHT NOW!
.
LET'S START RIGHT NOW
To do those things necessary to bring conditions back to normal. We've faced business stag- nation long
enough now to know what it means; so let's go- let's get started on the right track again. This business de-
depression will last just as long as the people of this country sit back and wait for something to
happen-we've got to make things happen.
We can accomplish nothing by waiting for the other fellow to start something-the chances are he is sitting
back waiting for us. We've simply got to realize that it is up to everyone to do his share, and there never
was a better time than right now to start the ball a'rolling.
Then there is another and probably a much more threatening angle to the situation. The period of
prosperity just passed has witnessed a tremendous over-expansion in practically every industry, not only
in this country, but throughout the entire civilized world. `As a consequence, today, and likely for many
years to come, the facilities for production will be greater than the powers of absorption-which means the
keenest kind of competition and the weeding out of the less stable and less progressive concerns in
each industry. Business houses today are fighting for their very existence, and those who survive will be
the ones that start now to reduce their costs and better their methods, in order to meet the keenest
competition on a fair basis. ~

How should we begin? Where should we start?

If every manufacturer in the metal working industry would start by putting his own house in order, by
replacing his old worn'-out tools with new and better machines, by weeding out bis obsolete equipment,
and installing more modern, more profitable equipment in its place, the first thing you know, we would
have better business, things would begin to move again, and industry once more would "hit the trailof
progress. We, The American Tool Works Company, have already started. Since Jan. 1921, we have weeded
out of our own plant, eighty-three machines of different kinds, and are now replacing them with the latest
and most modern tools. By this we have provided business for the foundries, orders for the steel mills,
and work for a number of men-in other words, we have gone into action in our own plant.
If you will do the same in yours, the other fellow the same in his, and so on, ad infinitum, this country
would soon forget that there was a business depression, a readjustment period or a deflation spasm. It is
up to every one of us to put our shoulder to the wheel, so let's go-a slang expression -yes-but chuck full
of meaning and good advice.
