A UNIFORM REVOLVING NUT FOR HYDRANTS.
The following letter on the subject of a uniform revolving nut for fire hydrants was sent to the fire insurance committee:
“Gentlemen:—Referring to the size to be used for a uniform revolving nut on hydrants, our judgment is that a five-sided nut one and onehalf inches across is one that will give satisfactory service, and is also a size that is already in general use. Should your committee determine upon those dimensions, such action will meet with our approval and co-operation.
