Theupperwall'oi nozzle 20 '66 is continued by means of a plate 34,- the upper surface of which conforms to the shaping of and closely approximates the surface of the cylinder mold, and the lower wall of which is tangential to the cylinder wall; thus, a relatively elongated nozzle tangential to the cylinder wall is provided, with the resultthat the stock flrst coming into contact with, the wall of the cylinder mold has'tangential "movement without turbulence.

The flexible wall 26 is formed in two sections,

and, the section 36 or lowermost section of which is directly'attached to the nozzle mouth.

a and the section 36 of which is slidably-engaged at its lower end with the section 36', and is provided at its upper end with an'cverflow shelf 31, The,

' slidable connection between the sections I6 and 36 may be readily provided ,by slotting :the uppermost bracket 21a for the receptionof the lower end of section 36. 7 In theform shown'in Figs. ,2 andA, the shelf '31 is a portion'of a structure I}, which in addition to the shelf includes a knife-edged deflector 39 3 comprising an arcuately curved wall overlying By means of angularly related adjusting screws "and", the structure 36 may be ,la'djusted both vertically-.andi-towardaand away from the peripheryof the mold, and will'in practice be positioned with the knife-edged deflector 36 as close to the wireof the mold as is possible without, touching the newly :formedsheet on the same; 1'

In operation ofthe a paratussthe head of incoming stock is controlled through head box 14,

so'thatthe, speedof the stock is substantially the same as the peripheral speed. of the mold Ii. Stock entering thegpassage. from the nozzle and coming intocontact-with the periphery of the mold is, therefore, stationarily related to the periphery of the mold, and the fibres thereofcan I maintaintheir normal position when'corning into contact with the mold, that'is to say, there is no such difference in the'speed of movement of the stockand receiving surface as to cause any tendency toward; uni-directional laying of the stock fibres.

I BY adjustment of the flexible wall 26 the size of the passage can be kept at just such a, point thatthe-yamount of stock properly fllls; the same to maintain .the head pressure against the screen face of the mold Ha This will, of course,-result in the stock arriving at the" end of the forming channel I at a considerablespeedc which would tend to cause squirting of the stock from the mouth of; this channel. This sheet;

In the form shown in Figs 2 and the knifemethods, all ,of which, however, should be of such character that dischargev of. the stock is avoidedin whichthe spurt falls back upon the formed sheet, or thegamount of relatively dead stock is of such depth that there will beno tendencyto washthe sheet from themold'because of Y the relatively high speed of movement of the mold. 1 4

In Flg. 5,-the-.knife-edged deflector is substi tuted for by a dandyrollfl which must beof greater diameter the discharge mouth/of squirtingwould, obviously, seriously damage the 1 i channel 43. This dandy roll is slightly spaced from the channel mouth so that the force of the flow is broken. v The newly formed sheet is held against dislodgment by the screen surface of the dandy roll, and the overflow stock will return overshelf- 31 to the stock outlet channel.-

Inthe form shown in Fig. 6, the mouth of the channel. is flared; the upper .end of the movable this bracket may be equipped with the shelf 31.

The pocket formed by flaring the mouth of the channel I! should be of such depth that the collected water will kill the spurt'of stock passing from themouth. In all forms of the invention described, white water extracted from the pulp'a'nd passing to'the interior of the mold will drain either through the ends of the'mold, or is passed through the wall thereof into the space beneath the flexible wall 26 and so passed through thenwhitewaterfoutl etconduit l5.

Since the construction 'he'reinbefore referred to is, obviously, capable; of considerable modificationfwi-thout in any"mannerrdeparting from the spirit of my invention, I donot wish to be understood as limiting myself thereto except as hereinafter claimed. ,7 '11 claim: '1.
