Hansen Type Foundry (Boston) rule bending machine [1909]. This is essentially a rolling mill; the wheel on the left adjusts the grasp of the rolling wheels which makes the degree of the curve; a small ratchet on the upper right releases the grip so completely round pieces may be easily removed from the rollers.
