The Bain Break Insulator.


This insulator is designed to take the place of the ordinary crude 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 constrution men. It will be found especially useful, also, for suspending arc lamps from iron cranes, insulating guy wires, and particularly, for 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.
