Spring Lever Valve Oil feeder
Self Cleansing and Filtering Cistern

2021. WHITE, JOSEPH, 7 Trinity Street, Southwark, London, S.E.

12 spring lever valve engine oil feeders; 6 syphon machine ditto 6 pyramid atmospheric ditto; 1 self-cleansing and filtering cistern; 3 improved filters; specimens of machine bands, laces, and spiral lathe bands.

The IMPROVED SPRING LEVER VALVE OIL FEEDERS are extensively used by engineers and others for lubricating engines and machinery; and they are well adapted for filling oil lamps, both in private houses and on board ships, being unsurpassed for their lightness, strength, and durability. They are also very cleanly, and greatly economise time and oil, as not a single drop can escape except the air valve be pressed by the person using them, and they cost but a trifle more than the common oil can.

Price 16/6, 18/6, 20/6, 22/6, 25/0, 27/6, 31/6 per doz.

LAMP FEEDERS. Pints, 2/6; 1 pint, 3/0; quarts, 3/6 each.

WHITE'S IMPROVED SYPHON MACHINE OIL FEEDERS run more freely, and will not spill if upset; can be regulated from a large stream to the smallest drop, and the waste oil returns into the can. Price 15/0, 18/0, 21/0, 22/6, 25/0, 30/0 per doz.

WHITE'S IMPROVED PYRAMID ATMOSPHERIC OIL FEEDERS. Price 5/0, 6/6, 7/6, 9/0, 10/6, 12/6 per doz.

The B. H. CROWN LEATHER DRIVING BAND (Preller's Patent Leather Company, manufacturers,) are one-third thinner, stronger, and lighter than tanned leather, and will work double the time of any others before requiring repairs.

WHITE'S B. H. CROWN LEATHER SPIRAL LATHE BANDS are far superior to catgut or any other material; they will not slip, and can be lengthened or shortened at pleasure.

WHITE'S LEFT-HANDED COUPLING HOOKS AND EYES for 3-stranded gut, leather, or rope bands.

The SELF CLEANSING AND FILTERING CISTERN for household and manufacturing purposes (Rae's Patent). — T. W. Cowan, Kent Iron Works, Greenwich, manufacturer.

The cisterns complete in every respect from £2 upwards.

By the use of these cisterns the water drawn off for household purposes is always pure, the sediment being washed to the apex of the cone, whence it is drawn off. The water for culinary purposes passes upwards through the filter, and from thence to the kitchen. The cistern is washed by a suitable arrangement every time the water comes in from the main, effecting a saving of the pecuniary outlay attending the cleansing of the ordinary cisterns.

Filters from £1 upwards.

The cisterns and filters may be seen in operation at the offices of the agent, 7 Trinity Street, Trinity Square, Southwark, London, S. E.
