with a chisel, and then rasp the peg to the right size, allowing it to fit tightly. These rails are then or more notches in each. They must fit tightly on to the pins, and will not require any other fixing. For the pins of the top rail, which protrude also, procure two hardwood knobs by way of finish, and fixed them firmly on. Glue must be entirely avoided, and nails must not appear any-where, as they will iron-mold any clothes which are damp. When not in use this novel clothes – horse folds up nearly flat, and therefore takes up very little room. If the horse is required on a larger scale, the wood should be proportionately stronger, the up-rights being smaller sizes than the one given are very useful.
This shows a very handy rack for permanently fixing to the kitchen wall on which to hang tea and other cloths for domestic use. When fitted it will be seen that the uprights overlap each other when folded, and the pins of the top rails should therefore be longer than the others, as they must protrude tin. when the horse is fixed. Taking one side will be noticed that the upright is on the outside at one end, and on the inside at the other, so that they are comparatively locked like a butt hinge, the top rail forming the pin, which must be fixed first. Having fixed all the rails, a single wire nail, with the head cut off, and driven through each pin will hold them in position ; punch the nails well in, and then saw off the protruding pins of the second and bottom rail flush, and clean off with the smoothing-plane. The pins of the third rail are utilized for holding the cross-pieces which regulate the opening of the horse. These are more clearly are fixed to the wall at any distance apart, according to the space available. The drawing shows the rails long, which is a useful size.
