FINERTV’S IMPROVED-SWIFT NOZZLE.
The remarkable and practical utility of Finerty’s improved Swift nozzle is a complete water shield for the pipe man. It can be held by one man under any and all conditions of pressure, and can be laid down on the ground, with a full stream flowing, and the nozzle will remain where so placed. Chief Ridel, of Omaha, claims to have held the nozzlealone against a 210-pound water pressure without the help of any kind of a pipe holder. This nozzle is in use in the New York fire department, and manufactured by the New York Coupling and Supntv company, of 59 Ann street, Manhattan, New York.
