Farrington's patent "consists in having a series of slats attached by joints or hinges to a suitable frame and connected to a spring... whereby the unburned bricks, during the process of drying, may be turned from a flatwise position, as they are left by the molds, to a position edgewise, with far greater facility and rapidity than they can be turned by the usual hand process."
