: nearlythe same in both cases. Over five cuts with each machine, theaverage time occupied by the Jeffrey bar was 4 minutes 31seconds, and the average power consumed was 22*7 horsepower;whilst, with the Jeffrey chain-machine, the time averaged 3minutes 37 seconds, and the power 14*5 horsepower. To over-come the frictional resistance of the bar-machine, that is, to startit when not cutting, required 6*85 horsepower, and the chain-machine 4*22 horsepower. The five bar-machines averaged 10*1horsepower per square foot under-cut per minute, and the sevenchain-machines 6*4 horsepower per square foot cut per minute.These experiments clearly indicated the superiority of the end-less chain-machine. The Jeffrey Chain-header.—The machine consists of astationary bed-frame, stayed, by means of screw-jacks at the frontand back, to the face and roof. On this, the chain-cutter frameslides, carrying the cutting-chain with tools attached to it. The 88 REPORT OF COMMITTEE UPON MECHANICAL COAL-CUTTING.
