Nesmith's patent "relates to that class of registers which are provided with and actuated by a rotary table, which is turned by passing the measures of grain around thereon; and the invention consists in a peculiar manner of constructing and combining the parts, whereby the register is simplified and cheapened, the nature of the pieces used being such that they may be made of cast metal and that they require no expensive fitting or flushing."
