WITH a single tool the combination wrench and
screw driver snpwn below, which is included with
every De Laval you can take it apart and set it up again
in a few minutes.
Could anything be easier or simpler?
There are no complicated parts no chain drives, no
cog wheel puzzles, no ball bearings to get flattened or
broken. Every adjustment can be made quickly by tin;
man on the farm without special tools of any kind.
Such simple construction makes the De Laval not only
