which a square shaft indicated by dot and dash lines 53
may be extended and by which the beam is supported
and turned when in beaming and drying machines. The
inner ends of the openings 51 and 52 in the end heads
are recessed to receive a small internal guide tube 54
through which the square shaft 53 passes. In order to
prevent the shouldered edges of the square openings 51
and 52 from interfering with the insertion of the square
shaft 53 into the beam roll, conical surfaces 55 and 56
are provided.
The outer ends of the squared openings 51 and 52 in
the respective square ends 30 and 31 are respectively
tapered to provide conical centering recesses 57 and 58
to receive respective centering cones 59 and 60 in the
respective chucks 28 and 29.
The chuck element 28 has an outer shell portion 61
that is cut away from the top and in which is ?tted a
round base plate 62 hearing the cone 59. A shaft ex~

lineal speed drive mechanism 91 has a reduction gear
94 with a brake control 95 thereon and a drive sprocket
96 to which the sprocket drive chain 93 is connected. A
similar reduction gear arrangement, not shown, is pro
vided on the opposite side of the jig to which the drive
chain 92 is connected.
In FIG. 2, there is shown a modi?ed form of the dye
ing jig in which there are provided two removable beam
arrangements. In place of the non-removable beam 20,
a removable beam 32 may be disposed between chucks
28’ and 29' which are respectively journallm in hear

devices, one of which being shown at 60' on the chuck
29’. The bearing support 40 is adjustable in the guide
