also see patent # 523,552.

My invention relates to the heating and drying of casks or barrels preparatory to the hooping and finishing of same, and has for its object to heat the barrel or cask externally as well as internally, to obviate the necessity and inconvenience of lifting the barrel by hand for placing it around the heater, as at present, and to insure a more thorough and rapid drying of the barrel than by the ordinary means. It consists in a combination and arrangement of apparatus, whereby the barrel or cask is raised into position around the heater, from which the heat is caused to circulate externally and internally around the barrel or cask, the latter descending freely, when dried, from the heater without interfering with the firing and operation thereof.
