 +====== Tightening the Quoins ======
 +
 +This is necessary, particularly in summer time, as also with [[f:​form|forms]] that are placed contiguous to the fire in winter, to prevent the [[m:​matter|matter]] from falling out. Examining the forms occasionally that have been some time in [[c:​chase|chase]] should not be neglected; for if they have been [[i:​imposing|imposed]] when the [[f:​furniture|furniture]] was wet, the matter is very likely to fall out, from the [[g:​gutter|gutters]] and other pieces shrinking. The [[q:​quoins|quoins]] are generally tightened with an old cross bar, with the fire poker, or the claw end of a sheep'​s foot, as being heavier and more efficacious than a piece of light furniture; but the best method, after securing them in this manner, is to lay them upon the [[i:​imposing-stone|imposing stone]], plane them down, and then [[l:​locking-up|lock them up]] afresh in a regular manner. //See// [[f:​falling-out|Falling Out]]. ​
