Devices for applying paint mechani? cally are attracting attention in ship yards of Great Britain. The first at? tempt along this line was nfadf on the buildings of the World's IFair at Chic? ago. The principle adopted in the Eng? lish devices is that of spraying the paint by means of air pressure, and it is in many respects identical with the vari? ous liquid fuel sprays which have the similar object of subdividing liquid fuel into minute particles un? der air pressure. Experiments have proven that paint so sprayed can be ap? plied with greater uniformity and ra? pidity than with brushes. The system, moreover, has the advantage of apply? ing the paint uniformly over the rough? est and' moiit unequal surfaces, a task which was both difficult and laborious whi n performed with brushes.
