He is foolish as the madman who pulls down the roof-tree of his house upon himself.
As much as I hate to say this, there's a reason fate pulls your guard down when it's time for you to meet your match.
When the load is being drawn out, the engine pulls directly on the main rope, coiling it on to its own drum, while the tail drum runs loose paying out its rope, a slight brake pressure being used to prevent its running out too fast.
This weight pulls directly against the rope; so if the latter slacks, the weight pulls out the pulley frame and tightens it up again.
Intermittent LinkworkClick and Ratchet.A click acting opon a ratchet-wheel or rack, which it pushes or pulls through a certain arc at each forward stroke and leaves at rest at each backward stroke, is an example of intermittent linkwork.
The other lays on the sheet to certain marks, runs the carriage in under the platen, and pulls the barhandle across to give the necessary impression.
The horizontal bar which receives the pull of the load is connected at its ends with the two spiral springs and pulls verti - cally upon them.
To deaden the vibration of the springs after a load has been placed on the platform, and thus to enable the weights and values of the goods to be read rapidly, the piston of a glycerin cylinder is attached to the end of the lever which pulls upon the hook of the horizontal bar and is worked by it in the glycerin.
The upper end of this rod is formed into a loop, and this loop pulls upon a knife-edge which is fixed to a short lateral arm rigidly attached to a vertical disk, and this disk turns in bearings formed in the frame of the machine.
The manner in which the balance of the load is weighed is as follows: Near the bottom of the vertical leg from the goods-pan, a projecting piece is rigidly attached to it, and as the pan descends with the balance of the load this piece pulls by a hook on a thin band of steel, which llIwwim is led upwards and wraps round the surface of a disk to which it is firmly secured.
And the long arm of the indicator lever pulls vertically upon the spring of an ordinary spring balance, which registers the load, and with the addition of suitable counting mechanism sums up the weights of any number of successive loads.
It pulls out and has a secret English drawer, you know!
He pulls up next to a farmer and asks the farmer how to get to a certain place.
