A.A good many of the geared engines for screw vessels are made in the same manner as land engines, with a beam overhead, which by means of a connecting rod extending downwards, gives motion to the crank shaft, on which are set the cog wheels which give motion to pinions on the screw shaft,the teeth of the wheels being generally of wood and the teeth of the pinions of iron.
I bethink me, workman priest; It were best to pierce the wall Where the thickness is the least Nearer there the light-beams fall, Sooner with our dark to mix That niche where stands the Crucifix.

The loom beam, which is seen clearly immediately below the pressing rollers, is driven by friction because the surface speed of the yarn must be constant; hence, as the diameter over the yarn on the beam increases, the revolutions per minute of the beam must decrease, and a varying amount of slip takes place between the friction-discs and their flannels.
Thou feel'st the sunny influence Like Memnon's fabled lyre of old, And wanderest in the beam intense Which turns the liquid air to gold.
