But all other deposits sufficiently developed to assure a definite knowledge of their value are exceeded by those which within the last 25 years have been opened in California, Arizona, New Mexico and in particular in Montana and upon the shores of Lake Superior.

The pattern, however, it would seem, was cut to suit a spherical end, the deviation being made during the ckppersmithing of raising, as the surface is about the same or near enough for practice.

In the manufacture of the various kinds of coal scoops which have been in use up to the present time, scope is given for the execution of some of the prettiest work of which the workman, under ordinary every day necessities, is called on to perform, and, furthermore, they must give much satisfaction to the zealous copperskithing for the labor bestowed.

This scoop has no bail, but is mounted with a handle similar to the back handle, as shown in Fig. The handle, which is a socket-handle made of iron, as shown in Fig.

Now, to make this we require a disk of metal equal to the surface of the pan, the strength of which may range from 14 to 18 pound plate. A hammer used for raising up or razing down has a rectangular face and is nearly flat, as already illus- trated in Fig.

The later and more successful mining era begins about the year Finally, smooth out the marks made by the razing-hammer with any smooth-faced hammer up to where the wiring edge is to be turned, and partially turn the edge over. If the well be at the end then the pan may be made enough deeper at one end, or the legs enough shorter, so the drip will drain to the well at the end.


When the tinning season is past and no more stove-pipe is likely to be wanted, coppersmithint jobbing work is slack, the stock is reviewed, and usually about the first things that are wanted are hand-bowls, which supply the work for advancing the boy a step further.
