ROCK BREAKERS. Rock Breakers are machines chiefly employed for the crushing of rock, as it comes disengaged from the mine, quarry or other bed, to fragments an inch, half inch or so in diameter. For this work they are fast superseding the " Cornish Rollers" and " Heavy Stamp "--in fine, all other machinery designed for like purposes.
