A Big Improvement
in a Little Guide Card
These little pieces of solid celluloid, which are dovetailed
into the cards, make the guide projection a continuous
surface of celluloid against which all the wear and
handling comes. It cannot split, open or wear down and
become soiled or dog-eared through use, as in the old
style celluloid guide. The inset pieces make the guide
strong and rigid, increasing the speed of handling and
doubling its life and usefulness.
A simple little device ? Yes, and mighty efficient.
