New (and finicky) automobiles and trucks were used to convey everything from men, field equipment, supplies, kitchens and the wounded once in theatre. But a heavy reliance on the tried and true method of animal-drawn carts that were smaller, lighter, more robust and dependable also proved prudent. All types

Mid-market machine

Things are constantly on the up for the would-be table saw purchaser. Go back only a few years and it would be aluminium extruded tables for the entry and mid-level saws, but cast iron is the expected starting point for many of us now when we look for a table saw.

In October 1916, only one month after the world’s first tanks had gone into battle for the very first time, its creators were in London at a specially convened meeting to discuss the future of tank warfare. They were absolutely confident that the new heavy rhomboid Mk I tanks would soon break the deadlock of the trenches and get the war on the move again, but what would happen then?

It is difficult to fundamentally change the traditional tools such as cutter. But if it fails, it takes on a new quality of not only the tool, but the machine is equipped with them.

The cup turning tool, at the time set records of performance, came to the forest industry of the metal. Mounted on stvoloobrabatyvayuschuyu car, it is easily and quickly removes the bark from the trunk. But the cup cutter — a truncated cone, and a pretty high. Once found in the way the branch cutter passes. Just prune the branch podnutritsya and stop — no longer cuts

Cover with canned in glass jars are usually removed so that they become unsuitable for reuse whatever they straighten. We propose to improve the manual capping machine so that it does not just roll up, but gently to open cans.

Covers captured a machine, no need to rectify, — they can be used again. It is easy to straighten out before removing the cover.

With the machine should be removed from the rolling drum roller, and in its place to carve a movable pad 1. Instead of the screw head of the drum need to carve lamb bolt 2 (it

ELECTRONIC telegraph PTA-80

B. Borisov, head of department of the Central Communication Station MPS

Currently, the telegraph network of rail transport introduced electronic telegraphs PTA-80 and F1100 (first — domestic production, the second — the German Democratic Republic). They are a significant part of the functions carried out electronic circuits and components.

Electronic telegraph devices have a number of features and advantages over electromechanical devices STA-M67 and T63, higher reliability due to the absence of mechanical units, the best indicators of the correcting ability of the receiver and the amount of distortion of the transmitter, a fast transition from one speed wiring to

Typewriter, kind and unprecedented

In the Research Institute are developing new design office typewriters. We would like to say that the lever-segment cars, which are commonly used today, a long time to die. Although this design will also be celebrating its centenary, to improve it is necessary and possible. However, to the inventors did not follow the paths already acquainted with, instead of pointing to the shortcomings of individual nodes (which, incidentally, any «typing» thoroughly recognize) will tell better about the new designs of typewriters.

In place of the lever-segment cars come with a ball, easily replaceable head with letters. Keystrokes operator through
