This machine is a 4 ft. square, 5 ft. high in the rear.

For Moulding Brick from Tempered Clay by

Horse or Water Power.

This Machine grinds the Clay, and at the same time moulds the Brick. When
worked by Horse Power, the horse being attached to the sweep, travels around the
Machine, which puts the grinding part into operation—the tube being filled with
clay. To commence moulding, the Machine receives the moulds from the men,
and delivers them again filled, and ready to be taken away.

This machine has been thoroughly tested, and is decidedly the best now in use
for manufacturing Bricks. It will mould more Bricks in a given time, with the
same amount of labor, and of better quality, than any other machine now in opera-
tion; and must, eventually, take the place of all others used for this purpose.
These Machines are made as ordered, to mould from Four to Six Bricks at a
time, and of different sizes; and to be worked by Horse, Steam or Water Power—
as desired by the purchaser. The number of Bricks varying from 10,000 to 20,000
per day, according to the power applied. For further information, apply to

ISAAC SCRIBNER, 25 Broadway; or at his Works, Locust Point,

Wher the Machines can be seen in successful operation. Orders through the Post Office will
also meet with prompt attention.

ISAAC SCRIBNER having purchased the right of the above Machines in the United States,
prepared to furnish them at short notice, with moulds of such size as ordered.

BRICKS kept constantly on hand for sale.
