and of greater area, the work-piece being then
so turned that the major axis of the ellipse 80

the preceding pass is so introduced between the

to the direction of rolling, whereupon after this
pass the work-piece is then- again'turned through
a further 45° with respect to the direction of
rolling so that it has ?nally been turned with

invention that the ?nal working. to circular shape‘
is attained by rollingthe elliptical work piece

requiredcan readily be calculated in relation
