Towgood knew perfectly well that Gamble had no money to do this, and he promptly dissolved the partnership and got Gamble right out of the mill altogether, owing to some flaw in the Fourdriniers' original agreement. This was the end of Gamble's association with paper-making after ten years 45 46 THE P A P E R - M A K I N G MACHINE No. 18. Old engraving of St. Neots Mill where the fourth paper-making machine made by Donkin was erected by the Fourdriniers. The mill was managed by John Gamble and subsequently sold by the Fourdriniers to Towgood, who worked it for many years.

The main or lower wire, or web, on which the stuff passed along, was made to shake by a horizontal shaking mechanism worked by a crank, in the same way as the modern wet-end shakes. The wire was supported on tube-rolls which, before the wire reached the wet-press, were supported on the lower- or under-dickle. These dickies correspond to our deckles, but instead of having only one on the top of the wire, there was also one underneath it, and they performed two functions. First, they regulated the width of stuff on the wire, and secondly, they had fixed to them a series u No.

He ought not, and should not, so far as Donkin could prevent it, derive any benefit from this proposed new improvement. The Fourdriniers said they had no objection to making an arrangement by which Donkin should derive some advantage from the success of the experiment, but they did not see that it was feasible to prevent Didot from receiving his share to which he was entitled according to their agreement with him. Henry Fourdrinier, who told him that he would be at liberty to keep it a secret until some terms or mode of remuneration should be agreed upon between them, agreed that Donkin should make a model of his proposed improvement at Bermondsey, to which the Fourdriniers would contribute £100.
