"The object of this thesis is to find out the relative cutting qualities of different kinds of rock drill bits. The bits tested were: the regular cross bit, the Z bit of the Southeast Missouri type and the bull bit of the Joplin type. All these bits were made on a No. 5 Leyner sharpener and were tempered as nearly alike as possible. All conditions were kept as nearly uniform as possible during the various tests; air pressure, length of stroke, size of bit, etc., the only variables entering being the difference in bits and personal equation of operators"--Introduction, page 1.
