Morgan and Daniels's invention "relates to improvements in guides and the cases or holders which retain them in a position in continuous wire-rod rolling mills, both for guiding the wire rod from one set of reducing-rolls to another, and also for automatically directing the finished rod alternately to the right or left hand reel, whereby the operation of wire-rod rollling and coiling is greatly facilitated and cheapened."
