The power is applied directly to the work, the only friction being that of the steel shaft in phosphor-bronze bearings.
This contact is made by tripping a little lever by means of a toothed wheel of phosphor-bronze.
phosphor-bronze in a line of given length and resistance has 3.84 times the weight of soft copper.
If great tensile strength is wanted, iron or steel will supply it at a fraction of the cost of phosphor-bronze.
