Definitions of ENDLESS BAND
Sort: Oldest first
A band, strap, or belt with its ends fastened together, placed over two pulleys so as to embrace a part of the circumference of each and stretched tightly enough to enable it to take hold of them and communicate motion from one to the other. An E. screw is a screw mounted so as to be capable of rotation only, which gives motion to a revolving follower, or wheel furnished with properly shaped teeth cut on its circumference, which work with the thread of the screw.
