Phillips, Silver City, Idaho. An Improved Fuse-Cap Fastener. Mr. N. W. Moodey of Fresno, Fresno county. Cal., has recently patented a de vice which is especially designed as an improved implement for fastening the caps on fuse employed in exploding giant powder. The pliers are formed of two similar parts, connected by the pivotal rivet, each part having a cheek with notches, at the sides of which are cutting edges for cutting the fuse. The curved jaws beyond the cheek pieces, when clos ed, form a circular aperture, around which the jaws are beveled, one jaw hav ing a tongue which fits in a groove in the other jaw. The pliers are employed for contracting the end of the cap on the fuse firmly and absolutely water-tight, thug avoiding the dangerous operation of digging out wet and unexploded loads. Miners who have used implements of this clans will Appreciate the improvements in theone designed by Mr. Moodey. The instrument crimps the cap on the end of the fuse firmly. The fuse-eutter is sim ple and efficient. This implement is neatly gotten up of the finest cast steel and nickel plated. It is small and light but strong and well adapted for its pur pose. It is well known that numbers of min ers are killed annually in the United States and elsewhere while going through the dangerous operation of digging out wet and unexploded loads, to say nothing of those losing an eye or a limb in the Accidents of this nature same way. could be avoided, and the handling of Giant Powder made comparatively safe, by the use of an instrument such as this invented by Mr. Moodey. Mining com panies would also relieve themselves from the liability of damage suits were tbe use of such an instrument adopted by j them. Another item of interest and J benefit to mining companies is the time j saved in preparing the cap and fuse for j use. Instead of taking time to use soap and a string of tar, after the usual effort to fasten the cap to the fuse, this imple ment enables the miner to cut the fuse and fasten the cap on firmly, and abso lutely water-tight ; and this is done in, a f 8 w seconds, which means no loss of time opm-atio^s Un appreciate the advantages ol this implement.—Scientific Presg.
