The objective of Clark's patent is "to adjust the blast of a blacksmith's fire properly, to prevent the choking of the blast-pipe by the falling ashes, and to remove the ashes readily...The improvements herein claimed consist in a novel method of combining with the fire-cup of a blacksmith's forge, two domes or cones, (so arranged as to form a conduit for the blast) and a shut-off valve, to regulate the force of the blast."
