- n. Same as feeder, 6 .
Sorry, no etymologies found.
A cross-wire dropping down out of place, and leaning upon the feed-wire has drawn the power into itself and off somewhere else.
What are some of the cross-currents that threaten to draw the power of the feed-wire?
And all the work affected by that feed-wire waits till the fixing is done.
And a man has to be keenly alert to keep his feed-wire clear.
The mildest thing that could happen would be to melt the feed-wire or to snap the driving belt, in which latter case the dynamo would come to a stop.
