Does anyone know how a manual hounsfield tensometer works? It is used in engineering to measure the tensile strength of a material. If anyone does know can you tell me how the material is mounted and how the machine works. Thanks

Its over 40 years since I used one, the test piece was held by spring loaded jaws that were tapered, so the higher the force used the more they gripped, at the end there was a drum with paper roll which turned as the force was applied, and a needle device that you used to make pin holes in the paper to produce a graph. Thats about all I can remember, if it helps.
