 +A mahogany shelf, in wooden presses, divided in two longitudinally,​ that clasps the [[h:​hose|hose]],​ and causes it and the[[s:​spindle| spindle]] to come down perpendicularly without any play. It is dovetailed at both ends, and fits into the [[c:​cheeks|cheeks]],​ with block wedges underneath to keep it up in its situation; the dovetails also keep the cheeks together, and answer the same purpose that the [[s:​summer|summer]] formerly did. The opening that the hose works in is lined with brass, and is made to fit it accurately. ​
