A New System Of Scales Of Equal Parts

Applicable to various purposes of Engineering, Architectural, and General Science. Illustrated by a fac-simile of the scales on copper-plate. By Charles Holtzapffel. 8vo. cloth, Price 2s. 6d. Published by John Weale, London. Sold also by Holtzapffel & Co., Engine, Lathe, and Tool Manufacturers, 64, Charing Cross, and 1*27 Long Acre, London.

"Mr Holtzapffel could not have done a better service for the profession, than turning his attention to the construction of scales suitable for their purposes. - We have for many years been in the habit of using scales made of paper, both for estimating and drawing, on account of their convenience. - We have very carefully examined several of the scales, and have much pleasure in testifying their accuracy and utility." - The Civil Engineer and Architects Journal.

HOLTZAPFFEL AND CO.'S.

Engine-Divided Scales Applicable To Engineering, Arthitectural, And General Science

As the least expensive fabric, each scale is ruled in the Dividing Engine, on a different slip of card paper, 18 inches long, the figures and inscription having been previously printed dry. By this arrangement the confusion of crowded scales is entirely avoided, and any of them may be applied directly to the drawing, or compared with one another, without the employment of the compasses. The material of the scales and of the drawing paper being identical, they will be found well adapted to the majority of the drawings used in common practice. Numerous experiments on this head are detailed in the pamphlet.

Ordinary Drawing Scales

A series of 24 scales, containing the usual reductions of the foot, from one sixteenth of an inch to 6 inches to the foot, including three lines of inches, divided into eighths, tenths, and twelfths, and the English foot decimally divided. Sold also in quarter-sets, or singly.

Chain Scales

A series of 12 scales in chains and links, namely, 1, 1 1/2, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 16, 20, 30, 40, chains to the Inch • various others, and also scales of chains and miles expressed in feet.

Proportional Scales

A series of 25 Proportional Scales, for the enlargement and diminution of drawings and models, so as to suit all transpositions of scale, required by the limitation of the drawing paper, the copper plate, or of the materials to be used in the Lathe or otherwise. The series gives 400 distinct and different ratios of proportion, which are given in a tabular form in the Pamphlet.

Comparative Scales

A series of 24 Comparative Scales, by which any length in Berlin, Brussels, English, Florence, French, Leipsic, Lisbon, Munich, Neapolitan, Polish, Rhineland, Roman, Sicilian, Spanish, Swedish, Venetian, Vienna, measures, whether in feet, bracchi, palms, inches, or parts, can be transposed on inspection into corresponding quantities, expressed in any other of the linear measures of the series.

The same method is equally applicable to the transposition of the measures, weights, moneys, miles, leagues, etc. of different Countries, and for any of which purposes, scales will be made to order, from the measures of the National Standards given in Kelly's Cambist.

A series of 24 Scales for showing the comparative bulks and weights of equal quantities of the metals, woods, stones, and materials principally used in the arts. Contraction Rules, used in making foundry patterns.

Any of the above, and many other Scales (fully described in the Pamphlet), graduated on separate slips of Card Board, 18 inches long, at 9s. the dozen, or separately, at 1s. each. If ruled to order, 2a. each. Cases covered with cloth, for one dozen, 1s. 6d.; for two dozen, 2s. each.

The Library. Sketching Or Pocket-Book Scale

A rectangle of card, 4 1/4 by 2, cut out in the annexed form, and divided on the several edges. It combines the Protractor, and all the usual Scales for Drawing, and it may be used as a set square, or bevil, parallel rule, Marquois Scale, etc. Price, on card, 3s., 4s., 5*., according to the number of graduations.

The Odontograph

Invented by the Rev. R. WILLIS, A.M., F.R.S., Jacksonian Professor, Cambridge, etc.

This is an instrument of easy application, used for describing the teeth of wheels by circular arc3, so that any two wheels of a set may work truly together. Price of the Odontograph on card and varnished. 5s.

The theoretical explanation of this system of teeth, which has been extensively adopted by practical men, will be found in the Trans. Inst. Civil Engineers, Vol. II., and in Willis's Principles of Mechanism, 1842.
