New Type Fire Nozzles

Special types of nozzle tips have been designed by Chief A. J. Baker of Lewis-town, Mont., and have been used in that department for several years. The tips are termed a spearhead. Trojan and a duck bill and are used on a 1 1/2-inch line in front of the shut-off, in place of the regular tips.

They are made of thin wall pipe of the type ordinarily used by electricians. The spear and the Trojan heads are made of 3/4-inch pipe and the duck bill of 1/2-inch pipe, with the fittings standard galvanized metal. The cutting edges are Binder sickels sharpened and tempered.

A hand brace with a 3/4-inch bit can be used to make a hole for this nozzle tip. Right, top and side views of spearhead which has two cutting edges—the Trojan has three.
