Description of the subject depicted in the print (from the original source): William Sellers Co. manufacture every kind of machine tools, in the broadest sense of the term as applied to machines to fashion metals. Many of these machines are of their own invention, or improved by them, by which the mechanic. arts are greatly facilitated in manipulation and benefited by the perfection of results. For example-a -dozen years ago the time required to bore- a single locomotive cylinder was seldom less than two days. A few years ago this firm were asked to construct a machine for that work exclusively. They did so, and produced a. machine that not only does the boring but all the turning, making the cylinder ready for the planing machine in three hours and twenty minutes. Besides their legitimate business of machine tool-making, they have for many years made shafting, bearings, and couplings and pulleys of improved construction and pattern. They also manufacture many things for the equipment of railways, such as turn-tables for locomotives, sliding or transfer tables, and turn-tables for pivot bridges. They have control of Giffard's patent injector for supplying steam boilers with water, to which they have made improvements almost equal in value to that of the original invention. They made their first formal display of goods in Europe at the Paris Exhibition in 1867, and a greater display at Vienna in 1873. At both of these exhibitions they received the most flattering testimonials of approbation. At Paris they were awarded the gold medal; at Vienna, the great diploma of honor, a prize given not for excellence in workmanship alone, but for eminent merit in scientific achievements.
