Putting on their gloves all set to work in a row in front of the press, an erection formed of two posts connected by a cross-beam, under which the sheaves to be drawn from were laid ears outward, the beam being pegged down by pins in the uprights, and lowered as the sheaves diminished.
When two o'clock arrived the professional reed-drawers tossed off the last half-pint in their flagon, put down their hooks, tied their last sheaves, and went away.
Tess urged Izz to leave off, agreeing, as she felt better, to finish the day without her, and make equal division of the number of sheaves.
The clicking of the sheaves
in the blocks as the sails ran down, head- sails first, was music to her; and she detected on the instant the jamming of a jib-downhaul, and almost saw the impatient jerk with which the sailor must have cleared it.
They had pack-mules along, and had brought everything I needed -- tools, pump, lead pipe, Greek fire, sheaves
of big rockets, roman candles, colored fire sprays, electric apparatus, and a lot of sundries -- everything necessary for the stateliest kind of a miracle.
The prize was delivered to Tom with as much effusion as the superintendent could pump up under the circumstances; but it lacked somewhat of the true gush, for the poor fellow's instinct taught him that there was a mystery here that could not well bear the light, perhaps; it was simply preposterous that this boy had warehoused two thousand sheaves
of Scriptural wisdom on his premises -- a dozen would strain his capacity, without a doubt.
From the bosom of the water rose sheaves
of liquid jets by hundreds.
Inside the drive station (Figure 6) the travel rope passes over a double-grooved traction sheave
with countersheave and is driven by friction through a wrap angle of 2 x 180[degrees].
Each servo motor then direct-drives a low-backlash reducer that is coupled to the belt sheave
by a torsionally stiff coupling (no keyways).
It comes up from the flown element, goes over the traveling sheave
, is muled to a sheave
on the top of a counterweight arbor, and then comes back to another sheave
at the far end of the track which brings it back to an anchor on the carrier.
The drive sheave
is contained in a machine room near the roof.
Temperature was measured as the sample exited the driven sheave
