|+||====== Button Tympan ======|
|+||An iron button with a female screw, screwed on a square [[s:shank|shanked]] bolt, that goes through the bottom [[f:frame|frame]] of the outer [[t:tympan|tympan]], in wooden presses, and turns on the upper side of the [[i:inner-tympan|inner tympan]], to assist in keeping it tight in its place. |
|+||In very fine work also, when the [[p:paper|paper]] is stout and heavy and large sheets, and it is not customary to fly the [[f:frisket|frisket]], but to turn it down upon the paper before the tympan is turned down upon the form, a button is placed upon the lower frame of the outer tympan, which clasps |
|+||the extreme end of the frisket, and confines the sheet of paper in its place on the tympan, and prevents it slipping down.|
