t The present invention relates to` forms' or
molds particularly adapted for use in a continuous
process of making so-called‘cement-,fiber board,
although it is not confined to‘ that specific use.
The primary purpose of the inventiontis to
permit wood or other organic flbers‘that maybe
several inches long and are coated with _a Port
land cement or gypsum binder to be fashioned
into board material of predetermined width `and
indefinite length which is cut into individual
panel lengths; each panel remaining-‘in an _indi
vidual form until cured or set. In this way every
panel may be of uniform texture from one end
to the other and, after being molded,` it is pro
tected >against damage until it becomes> >strong
the forms arranged end to end to‘ create a> single, “l
long trough-like form; Fig. 5 is a side `view, on
the same scaleas Figs. 1-3, showing fragments
of two of the forms which meet in Fig. 4; Fig. `6
is an> end view of a fragmentV of a form provided
with aI wear-resisting lining; and Fig. v'I is an end
view of `a fragment of another modified form.
Each form is composed of a flat bottom wall I
and two »parallel side walls, 2 `and 3. The side
walls are preferably 'sturdy‘ledges or bars and
are somewhatv shorter` than` the bottom wall.
In the arrangement shown the side walls termi
nate at equal distances from> the ends of the bot
tom wall. Therefore,` when two of the forms are
placedend to end,fregardless of which end of one
meetsthe other form,'sirnilar` slots or gaps, 4, 4,
respectively, appear inthe side walls of the com
