"Vintage Machinery" entry for E. & B. Holmes Machinery Co.
James Sangster - patent attorney My invention relates to certain improvements in journal-boxes, whereby they may be easily and quickly adjusted and held rigidly at any point when so adjusted, and whereby the lubricating material may be effectually applied and used with less waste than with ordinary boxes.

I claim as my invention—

1. In a journal-box, the combination of the base portion comprising the lower half of the box and upper portion forming the upper half of the box, two chambers adapted to receive different kinds of lubricating material and passages for conducting the same to the shaft, and means for adjusting the upper half, substantially as described.

2. In a journal-box, the combination of the upper and lower portions, bolts for adjusting it, and a pivoted piece, for releasing the upper portion of the box, substantially as described.

3. In a journal-box, the lower half, having the angular projecting piece, slots, and forward-projecting piece, in combination with the upper portion, adjusting screws, bolts, and a pivoted bar, provided with bolts, as and for the purposes described.
