Its not bad relationships. No one is at fault. And, regarding allusive metaphor pertaining to a particular formal relationship with a woman; please permit I additionally cite my currently science fiction dream haul of an Aurum (Au) lode smoothly delivered via /MAGJAK on PEYTORILL.com.
That said, however, Tom Lewis’s book “Divided Highways” talked about no clutch, 3 gear and reverse Mack dumptrucks called “Jammers”. And, the mechanical advantage metaphor of a clutch optimally begins therein.
Early resource harvest and extraction mechanical advantage machines such as this are reminiscent of IH and Deere, and to Sirus MacCormack and John Deere in particular… often rolling from Boston to New York, and on to destinations like Biltmote.com, and then through OK to San Francisco with Cowboys, Cattle, and Statesmen.
And, as you read history, I remind you to please attempt to remember that American power pertains to this metaphor of agricultural, silvicultural and geophysical machinery.
Now, I’ll explain my objective:
In fact, a contributing story, about the Deere Moldboard, and plowing, pertains to Lewis, Knox, Napoleon, Ambassador Franklin, and to “Teddy”, in Roosevelt’s time at Harvard, and to beaver pelt felt triorns in Cooper’s “Leather Stocking Tales”, yet, most importantly, this tale is in regards to “matching up”.
Ore lode forwarding rigs in particular, which optimally forwarded an Aurum lode, didn’t have a clutch on the Colorado River jobs, or at Hetch Hetchy in the Sierra Nevada, just to the NorthEast of San Fracisco.
Conncurrently, debate regarding “something to drink” in San Francisco, and accordant pleasantries regarding the most excuisitely beatiful valley in California proceeded.
Forwarding lodes contextual to the optimally sought Aurum is an issue herein pertaining to “Jammers” and steam machines. And, the Jammers, as they were called, the steam trains and the steam shovels, were putting in the 1863 Pacific Line from Boston Hyde shops on the Charles, through cowboy country, past meat packing houses on Manhattan’s Pacific Line, and into California all the way to the Bay and into the Trolly system, as the project proceeded to access and make utile good of the valley; thereby bringing water to San Francisco via the Dam at Hetch Hetchy, (and eventually to Vegas and Pheonix).
Grinding, when hauling a lode, and herein conerning Aurum, is about stopping momentum to engage, and about synchronous engagement while trucking the rocks, often as the ore lode was being handled therein, on the fly…
Imortantly, the track and the engine need to “match up” so that the drive train delivers power from the engine ton that rubber connect and locomotes the machine and load forward.
Notably, John Muir wrote “The Mountains of California” regarding those days. Muir, Roosevelt, and Pinchot (the Pinchot Sycamore is near me) were leaders of the debate about rolling from Boston to San Francisco on the Pacific line.
British engineers, it is known, had overseen the toil of Chinese and Irish laborers as our USA then connected with the ceremonial golden spike.
It was then becoming increasingly possible to get a strip steak that had been rustled through Texas and Oklahoma and slaughtered in Mahattan along the High Line. Cowhide continued to boston for tanning.
Post Bellum, relative to the the Civil War, cotton textiles had become scarce, and, were at that time amidst decades of being replaced by VT wool amidst Justin Morrill’s state of Vermont’s transition from dairy to wool production as fiberous textile supply for the looms in the mills of Lowell and Biddeford, on the Merrimac and Socco Rivers respectively.
Massachusetts textile prodution from Southern Cotton had transferred into Vermont wool for the looms at the generative mills, the most globally pervasive economy of scale from our USA of that time, from Lowell and Biddeford, and the fashion of the day had transitioned to Vermont Wool, Texan Leather, New England Furs, Pelt Felt and Milliner Trade Feathers, as Vermont dairy began to migrate toards Wisconsin and the agricultual lands of central Caliornia state. (There are additional tales of oil and coal)
Trouvelot Gypsy Silk Ties created a style scene in Massachusetts Bay Colony too, and effected style in London and Paris where a cotton collar, even on a wool shirt, denoted power… perhaps with the addition of a canadensis pelt felt and fur was popular amidst a temporality flux of fashion in the bellum ebb and flow changed much.
An engineer attempting to reach San Francisco might have worn an Aurum spiked Trouvelot Gypsy Tie.
The Minister wore a black veil regarding starling murmorings at the steeple.
And, the premise of a certain scarlet letter, discussed in secrecy, was certainly not to be worn by an exquisite woman; in the prescious cotton, and perhaps with wool, furs and a fashionable milliner feather hat, there, in a rail car which might have brought people whit the dream and certain cargo westward, and eastward, as to and from San Fracisco to the North Eastern cities of Boston and New York. Machines and travel.
