5—Covering Racquet-balls.

Rate paid.—1s. 10d. per gross.

Process.—The cores or centres are handed to the coverers ready made, and the worker is given a gross of squares of white leather just large enough to enclose a centre. The thread is provided by employer. The covers are damped before sewing, and the ball when covered has to be rolled between two slabs of marble to smooth down any projection of the seams.
