 +====== Taylor and Martineau'​s Press ======
 +
 +This is an iron press, the [[f:​frame|frame]] of which forms two upright [[c:​cheeks|cheeks]] and the [[h:​head|head]]. The power is not obtained by a screw, but by a cylinder with a knee-joint in the middle, which is bent when not pulling; this allows the [[p:​platen|platen]] to rise from the form, which is accomplished by a weight behind, that counterbalances the platen. The pull is effected by a bar, in the usual manner, that brings the knee-joint straight, depresses the platen, and produces the impression. The power is regulated by a screw through the head, that acts upon the cylinder. ​
