INTRODUCTION.
This
book
is
intended
by
the
author
to
complete
the
work
begun
in
"
The
Iron
Founder,"
for
which
reason
it
is
called
a"
Supplement"
to
the
former.
Whilst
"The
Iron
Founder"
as
stated
in
the
preface
to
said
book
may
in
all
respects
be
considered
a
moulder's
book,
for
the
reason
that
the
subjectstreated
are
directlyin
line
with
the
manipulations
called
forth
in
the
actual
dailypractice
of
the
moulder,
the
"Supplement"
embraces
every
other
sub-
ject
concomitant
with
such
practice,
all
of
which
itis
essential
that
every
moulder
should
possess
some
knowl-
edge
of,
even
if
he
does
not
aspireto
thedignity
of
an
expert
in
the
whole
art
of
moulding.
The
author
realizes
the
difficulty
of
presenting
these
somewhat
dry
and
matter-of-fact
subjects
in
a
manner
calculated
to
command
the
attention
of
such
as
are
not
directly
interested
in
foundry
affairs,
and
his
daily
ex-
perience
in
the
foundry
has
convinced
him
that
very
few
of
the
rank
and
file,
even
amongst
moulders
them
selves,
care
to
peruse
the
apparently
tiresome
pages
of
a
book
devoted
exclusively
to
matters
with
which
they
are
brought
intodailycontact.
It
has
been
his
aim,
therefore,
to
treat
the
various
subjects
in
a
manner
somewhat
dif-
ferent
to
the
methods
usually
adopted
for
the
ordinary
text-book,
and
by
this
means
excite
a
healthy
desire,
if
possible,
for
a
more
extended
knowledge
of
what
is
herein
