"Vintage Machinery" entry for Lane & Bodley
"Our said improvement relates and has special reference to the use of a metallic core, core-bar, or mandrel, within the mould at the time of casting the hanger, pedestal, plumber-block, or device of like character, said core-bar or mandrel, when means of vertical adjustment are not desired, having been previously fitted with a 'chill' and nut, and when such means of adjustment are desired, with the necessary nuts or female screws, for the reception of the pintles or adjusting-screws, which form the external or concave portion of the ball-and-socket joint or bearing common to all such devices.

"We are aware of the fact that hangers, and devices of like character, have heretofore been constructed, involving the ball-and-socket principle, but they have, prior to our invention, been first cast, and then bored and chased or tapped, by a laborious and expensive process, involving the use of costly machinery, provided specially for the purpose. By our improved method of construction, we claim to obtain an accurate and perfect mechanism, and at a much less expense."
