Mr. Samuel Hadlock. of this city is
an old and experienced contractor.
having had much to do with wharf
building on Puget Sound. Some
time ago he conceived the idea of
improving the machinery of pile
drivers so as to save the expense of
keeping a man aloft on the shears to
cast off the nippers of the hammer.
Acting upon this idea, he Went to
work to put it in tangible shape; the
result is combination automatic nip~
pers that work to acharni. Mr. Had
lock prepareda model and applied
for a patent which was granted. He
has just had his first pair of nippers
under the patent made at Weymouth
and Mof‘t'at‘s blacksmith shop where
they can be seen by the public. The
invention will he used on Mr. Had
loek's new steam pile driver just near
in completion.
The contrivance is rather simple
though decidedly ingenious. A lit
tle lever works so as to separate the
‘points of the nippers and then fall
back to its place; it will be worked
by a small line, the operator remain
ing on the deck of the scow. Not
only will it be unnecessary to have
a man aloft to throw 03 the nippers
by means of a crowbnr, as is the case
with the old kind, but the hammer can
he dropped in an instantat any point,
thus saving largely in the time of
hoisting and letting go. Mr Hadlock
has had numerous letters asking for
terms for county or state rights. If it
works as satisfactory as present indi
cations assure. the new improvement
will soon come into general use, in
which case a handsome royalty will
be secured for the, inventor. We
shall await with considerable interest
the time when this invention will be
put into practical and steady use,
he )lll" that it ma rove to be all
llltllt i: expected. ybli'. Hadlock cer
tainly deserves the fullest measure of
success after his patient labor in per
fecting the rude contrivance suggest
ed by his idea in the first instance.
Port Townsend will he would of his
success. at least, and wharf builders
will take kindly to any improvement
that reduces the cost of driving piles
—-as this one certainly promises.
