In other cases, if wished, the arrangement may be hot, cold, and waste; the rod-pipe in this latter case being put to the one side, and the cold, if off the main with an extra strong pressure, may have its knob made to turn round, being fixed on to the spindle of a screw-down stop cock, in the place of pulling out like the other two. In order to get a proper hold of it, this cold knob may in this case be also made larger than the other two, and, owing to its being in the centre, this extra size will be no objection. The outer rim of all such knobs for screw-down cranes ought to be properly roughened or indented, so that a firm hold may be got of them. In place of a round knob, however, some prefer a four-pronged handle, as per Fig 349a, for the screw-down stop-cocks.

E is perpendicular breast-piece which rests on D as shown, and to which the back-check lifters are attached, and through which the pulls work. A small piece of marble is also required at each end of E, being put on at right angles thereto, F is an oblong horizontal top-piece of marble, covering in space between E and the wall. This top-piece F should be readily movable at pleasure, so as to allow the plumber to get at fittings. The front piece E should also be movable when required. The plumber also on his part ought so to arrange his cranes, &c, in position, or with couplings, as may be necessary, so that repairs may be easily made. If the expense be no objection, a £-in. stuffing stopcock may be put on underneath the basin sta...
