driving mill of Capt. D. W. Barger, at Shawsville, Virginia. This wheel
is fed by a wooden fore bay and is equipped with a segment gear.
Fitz Water Wheels have brought prosperity to water poered mills throughout
the country for they afford steady powere and constant service from streams
that would be worthless with any other type of wheel.
There are more than 750 mills and factories in the State of Virginia alone
that are being driven today by Fitz Water Wheels.
We can furnish segment gears with the cogs on the outsie of the circle
as shown or on the inside of the circle just as desired. The latter type
is known as an internal segment gear and will drive the pinion wheel in
the same direction that the water wheel travels.
Round Riveted Steel Flume and our new style Dropped End Steel Tank to
feed water wheel. This type of tank or gate box permints the use of round
feed pipe without sacriface of head, thus affording an economical water
tight all steel flume.
