Not wishing to exaggerate thevalue of the ratchet or hand rotary machines, the writer is keep-ing well within the mark in stating that two holes can be drilledwith these, to one with the jumper-drill; and that, underordinary conditions, the output per shift of the pair of men canwith ease be increased fully 20 per cent. In addition to this advantage, the diminished amount ofphysical labour, required in working these machines, enables mento continue mining, who would have been compelled to abandonit, if restricted to the jumper-drill; and it also allows youths, 182 HATCHET AND HAND-MACHINE DRILLS. under the direction of their fathers or other men, to engage inmining at a comparatively early age. Table I. shows the gradual increase in the use of ratchet andother hand-machine drills in the Cleveland mines, in percentageof the total output each year.
