To all 'whom it may concern:

Fig. 2 is a sectional View taken on the the present instance by a pin, b, which penetrates the block so that its end will rest in a groove cut around the end of the roller, as shown in Fig. 2, by withdrawing which piu the roller can he disengaged from its block. The roller is hy this attachment insured a revolving -motion for rolling out a sheet of dough, from which to cut biscuits, cakes, Sac.

The block O is secured tothe kneading-hoard by means ot' staples, c e, either ot' which can be caught over a hook, d, rising from the rear end ofthe board A.

  1. Good Ole George made a lot of bread selling that machine, I mean lots of dough. To bad many people in the area think that loafing is the way to go. The State just sends them bread free of charge. Yup you can make lots of bread loafing.
