MACHINE KNIVES. There are at the present time in this country twenty-three manufacturers of Machine Knives, and of this number we could name a half-dozen or more whose product is first-class. For many years the prices of the different manufacturers have been alike (perhaps it is a mutual agreement, perhaps a combination, or it may be one of those awful "Octopus-es" they call a "Trust,", but at any rate, they have never been severely criticized, as their prices are in the main quite reasonable). In view of the fact that prices on all makes are alike, there is no good reason why any user should be satisfied with a poor quality of knives.
Our Machine Knives are the very best that we can procure, and we will be pleased to have a trial order —at least— from any who wish to better their condition as far as Machine Knives are concerned.
DIRRECTIONS FOR ORDERING.—Place the knife with face on paper and mark with sharp pencil carefully around all sides and slots. so as to have a sketch of knife like cut. And it is important that the length, thickness and width of knife is stated, how many knives are to be balanced in a set, and what temper is desired; whether high to grind only, medium to file slowly, or low to file easily. THE LENGTH OF A KNIFE MEANS THE DISTANCE ACROSS THE CUTTING EDGE.

PROPORTIONAL KNIFE BALANCING MACHINE.
It is needless to write of the advantages gained by having well balanced knives. Knives can be reduced to the same specific weight with a common pair of scales, but that does not attain the object, which is to have the weight agree in corresponding parts.
With this machine the desired results may be secured. If a set of Knives or Bits is balanced, and the head used is in balance, the machine will run absolutely true.
No. 1, $15.00, complete; this is the standard size, and is suitable for knives up to 36 in. long. Weight, 60 lbs.
No. 2, $40.00; special size for knives up to 48 in. long.
