The preliminary bending set is so arrangedjes to bend and not'stretch the board and furthermore does not compress it. The

final 'set'of creasing rolls -in this instance is composed of four rolls :or cons structed and arranged" as to give thedesired s1ze,-- shape, and. permanency t'o th'e crease.

bending rolls in tralrihll; and alower'roll12 having the groove 18.

rolls 110 -12 are preferably adjustably mu'r dtqpt pa si y. en shaft! 14. 15, which are capable of adjustmenttO- ward and from each other to compensate for various thicknesses of to graduate the bend to board. v

The disposition of the rolls 10 and 12 is such that the board is not compressed as it passes between them, but is free to be drawn laterally toward them as it is-beingbent, and therefore the material at the bend will paper board and given to the not be stretched andtorn.

For the best results these ribs will be separated a trifle less than the thickness of the board, and as it passes between the ribs it willlreceive a slight compression. It will be understood, however, that good results can be obtained without resorting to the compression just referred to.

T e ribbed rolls 1719 would not of themselves be sufiicient to form the final crease, hence the use of the smaller inclined rolls or disks 2223. As'before mentioned, these rolls 2223 are adjustable toward and from each other as well as being adjustable toward or from the roll 17.

These rolls 22-23 are so arranged as to force the material in the bend inwardly toward the rib 18 and upwardly against the roll 17 ateither side of the rib 18. ably a slight compression of the material by these rolls would be advisable and yet not absolutely necessary, as it has been found by experiment that good results are obtained without it. a 1

While it is desirable to use rolls such as 22-23 to form the sides ofthe crease, it will be obvious that other devices might be used in place thereof, such, for instance, as stationa material toward the roll 17 and rib 18.

The final crease or channel herein shown is the preferred form, but it is obvious that the same may'be made with parallel fiat,-

sides or with conver 'ng flat sides and not depart from the spirlt and scopeof this invention.

From the foregoing it will be seen that it is an esential feature of this invention to first bend the material without stretching or comp it and to gather enough material in sai bend to form all the material necessary for the finished crease.

It is believed that the operation and many advan of this invention will be fully understood from the foregoing description.'
