A further and important object of the inven»
tion is to provide a distributing conveyer for use
in the manufacture of tile, brick or like argilla
ceous plastic articles wherein after the initial for

side-by-side relationship, with a predetermined
number of a row of such articles simultaneously
discharged from the second conveyer onto a third
conveyer for subsequent treatment of the articles.
With the above and other objects inview that
will become apparent as the nature of the inven

The conveyer II, as shown in Figures 3 to i5,
may have each conveyer element I2 thereof coin- l
