j The: cooperating, or sol-fcalled inal'e Inenq ber B, is also'in the form of a flat plate 10- of: somewhat less width vertically than the plate 1, but otherwise'of dimensions corre sponding approximately with I the dimensions of plate 1 and also fora. similar purpose preferably rounded atitsopposite'side edges, as at 11 11; At its top" or-upper I edge, the plate 10 is forrnedwith a pair of I outer or-so-called frontffaee 'of plate 10, the heads 12 being connected :to the plate 10 by.

so-called heads-12 l2, which aresuitably spaced to correspond with the spacing'of the slots 6 6,-of plate 1 andwhich are :oflset. from, but which extend verticallyiin a plane approximatelyparallelswith the plane of the Y front face of the plate 10; a i seen especi ll] in Fig. 6.
