The Bain Break Insulator
THE insulator illustrated below is designed to take the place of the ordinary devices that have been used as break insulators.
The new insulator is made of one piece of porcelain, carefully glazed, and is so simple as to require scarcely a word of explanation; while its great strength and perfect adaptability are sure to commend themselves to all practical construction men. This insulator will be found especially useful, also, for suspending arc lamps from iron cranes, insulating guy wires, and particularly, for insulating span wires in electric railroad work.
The Central Electric Company, of Chicago, control the patent and are placing the device upon the market.
