  • a baffle plate cast in top to deflect air stream in such a manner as to prevent fog forming on window

  • shoulder support widened so as to be more comfortable

  • center of gravity lowered so as to rest more securely

  • lower portion widened and deepened so as to be more comfortable

  • vision plate has been raised so as to give larger field of over all condition is very good ,
