Bramah's Press

F.W. Merchant.  Elementary Mechanics for Upper School Classes in High Schools. Toronto:  The Copp, Clark Company, Ltd., 1912.

What hydraulic presses were one called.  Joseph Bramah was granted a patent for this invention in 1795.  Quite an amazing guy.  Among his many accomplishments, he helped to develop the flush toilet!
