iron to a white heat where the extra
width is desired, and, holding one end
tightly, hammer the other end until the
iron is "butted" to about twice its own
thickness. This is then hammered out
flat, giving the feet a broader effect at
the curve without weakening or reduc-
ing the thickness of the iron in any way.
Three bands i Y3 inches wide by Y8 inch
thick are hammered around the upper
extension of the feet and riveted to the
center standard. Next a large band is
cut, measuring 36 inches in diameter by
3 inches wide
when com-
pleted.  The
band should be
turned over a
wire at each
edge to rein-
force it suffi-
ciently to sup-
port the candle
brackets that
are to be rivet-
ed to it. The
brackets are
made of I-inch
iron tubing,-
about No. 18
gauge, l- e f t
round at the
upper part and
extending 2Y8
inches below
the bottom of
the saucer,
where it is flat-
tened down in
oval shape and
bent at right
angles to the
band. Then the
tube is ham-
mered flat, ex-
tended up the
face of the
                      band and se-
curely riveted there. The saucer is
fastened to the tube by cutting a hole
in the bottom and hammering down the
flange, which is then riveted to the out-
side of the tube. The support for the
band is made in three pieces, brought
together in the center. The outer ends
are bent up and riveted to the inner
edge of the band, and the inner ends
are bent down and riveted to the center
standard. Three scrolls are made and
fastened' to the center support directly
underneath the band supports, where
