In the ordinary drawing apparatus having a bottom slot for the outlet of the aqueous cellulose solution the adjustment of, the thichioss of the slot is efl'ected by means of 6 shutters, that is to say b means of the two lips forming the slot. ne lip is movable,

and is moved nearer toward or on the shutter-like movable lip. The lip is to very wide up to one meter or more) end it will he res. ily understood that, with such a width, in order to work in at proper menner, the lip should have also a at len h.

However, it is not practicable to fix this length at too. great a value becouse the edjustment wou d become nearly impossible owing to the fact that the shutter is working in acids. des, the movable lips forming the slot must be made of inonidizehle metal.

2o Accordinglyilthere results from the construc-;

tion end met od of edustment of the present lips used in the menu actors of the cellulose -1 we, r. heevy weiht, u. very delicate edjustment, end u very r: igh cost of the s 95 thwe objections ere note by the present invention which essentinl'ly consists in the feet that the movuble lips no lon or are shutters end that the udjustment of lue slot thic no longer is efiected through to a shutter but hy causing the stid well wch carries the lip to pivot ehout s pipe or e cylin cel pivot, the sold pipe or cylindrical pivot ot the e to securing the tightness of the drowing npperstus on the side opte the slot.

order to facilitate the description of the principle we shell refer to the eccornr; drnwing which 'illuru,'only hy enple end not oftution, two

: it or i is sup lied by a preferably circular duct orfimge between the cylindricnl pivot end the e following description refers 1 to the construction according to Figs. 1 and 2. The verious parts forming the two u-w ere indicated with the same reference numhers when the perts concerned perform the some duty in hoth'constructions.

In Fig. l. the cellulose solution nrrives through the circular here 1 of the pipe 2 end passes through the holes 3 into the slot t. The well 8 is tired to the cylindrical pivot by .studs 5; the bolts 6 secure the wall 9 to the cylindrical pivot. The bolts 6 ere fitted with to o hell head 7, and the'bnll centercoincides with the center 1 of the cylindricol pivot. 0n the stationary wall 8 alihewise stationery lip 10 is fined by rnennsof screws, the seid lip being mode of sold-proof motel. 'lo the movable well 9 the second lip ll, likewise of acid-proof metal, is t ed by meons of screws. I

e top end of the well .8 has one or more extensions 12 cost in one with the piece 8. 1: movnble well 9 has similer extensions 13. e two ends of the esions 12 end L? ere interconnected by an justment device operable by menus of the hendwheel 15. The

The wall 8 remains ststionery' on the cydricel pivot 2, being prevented from revolving hy the studs 5. In this case the oi 'the slot 4 will beincrl H dwheel .15 is revolved in the up- .3

formed, I declare that what I through the 1 then become unnecessary.

*facture of cellulose ite direction, the thickness of the slot will decreased.

What has been described above, however, is but an exam le of embodiment of the subject matter of t e invention, and it is obvious that the arrangement of the adjustment handwheels 15 and screw-spindles 14 may be varied according to width of the drawing apparatus.

For instance, if the apparatus is very wide, several screw-spindles and be provided. In this case, all-the handwheels may be interconnected by means of toothed wheels, shafts or worms etc., for the purpose of enabling all the handwheels to be operated simultaneously and from the same place. Further, with the screw-spindle and handwheel adjustment, any convenient quick acting contrivance may be combined for quickly opening the drawing apparatus for cleaning purposes.

Where all the handwheels are interconnected by a common operating device, a movable coupling device might be p handwheels may rovided which iacture of cellulose cylindrical pipe ada ted to contain the cellulose material, a we inte a second wall rotatably pipe, with respect to said first wall forming a 8 0t at their extremities, a pluralit of apertures disposed in said pipe,- an a comisposed upon said municating chamber formed in said walls intermediate said apertures and slot. .4.

would permit of disconnecting any of the handwheels along with its spindle and of adjusting it relatively to the other handwheels, and of connecting it up again after completion of the adjustment. The cylindrical pivot 2 (Fig. 1) may be made integral with the wall 8. In sucha case the wall 9 would slide directly on the cylindrical pivotal surface of the wall 8. The bolts or studs would The cylindrical pivot might also be designed as shown in Fig. 3. Also the said pivot and the wall 8 mightbe cast as two separate parts. Finally, the adjusting contnvance need not be arranged in the position shown in Figs. 1 and 3; it may be arranged in any other the size and arrangement paratus in the machine.

Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of my said invention of the drawing apposition according to and in what manner the same is to be perclaimis:-
