The power is obtained by pulling the bar-handle across which causes an inclined piece of wedge-shaped steel, called the chifi, to become perpendicular; in so doing, the platen is forced down and the impression takes place at the moment the chill (?) is brought into a vertical position. On the return of the bar, the platen is raised by a spiral spring placed in a box and fixed at the head of the press where the Prince of Wales feathers are.
