 +====== Hose ======
 +
 +Two upright bars of iron that connected the [[g:​garter|garter]] and the [[h:​hose-hooks|hose hooks]], and went through the[[t:​till| till]]. There were screws at each end, by which they could tighten the platen cords, if they became slack. — //​M//​. ​
 +
 +The hose in wooden presses is now quite different: it is a wooden case for the [[s:​spindle|spindle]] to work in, made hollow in the inside to fit it, and to which it is connected by the garter; it is square on the outside, and passes through an opening in the till, which it should fit accurately; and is tied to the platen by means of four iron hooks, one at each bottom corner. Its uses are, to guide the platen down to the form in a horizontal position, by its passing through the till; and also to lift the platen from off the [[f:​form|form]],​ which it does by the return of the press bar, and its connexion with the spindle by means of the garter. ​
