s a=20
'modern' installation in that it had a cast iron lowside frame, cast iron=
headstocks, etc. However, they stays were of normal type and the sliders=
described as being 'metal blocks'. Preumably this means a metal block=20
sliding on a track. I've not seen these - can anyone describe them in det=
and provide any other example - presumably they were only used for a shor=
time before Hastings stays became the norm.
