This journal box was adjustable so that it could be tightened when the Babbitt bearing was worn. See also patent 219,851. These patents have been observed on a Rowley & Hermance "Sweepstakes" planer-matcher, and the patent date is listed on numerous other machines seen in Rowley & Hermance catalogs.

"This invention consists in a novel construction of a journal-box with two oppositely-inclined caps, which are secured in place by set-screws, and which, when free from control of said screws, will adjust themselves in such position on the journal as to be efficient in securing the same without producing excessive friction thereon. If also consists in adjustable abutment-plates employed in connection with such caps, or with other movable bearings or portions thereof for the purpose of securing such bearing or portions very positively and firmly without producing unnecessary pressure thereon."
