A hinged toothed segment is held in engagement with rack teeth cut on the main shank by the action of a cam lever. The cam lever is connected to the toothed segment by a strap. There is no screw adjustment, so the official title is misleading.

The design was radically revised by Gilman's July 17, 1855 Added Improvement AI125.

In October 1867 Gilman sought a reissue of the patent; the claims portion of that reissue application was reproduced in the Oct. 30, 1867 AMERICAN ARTISAN.
