ANCHOR.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Aug. 26,1913.
Application filed December 11, 1912. Serial No. 736,113.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, WILLIAM J. KAN'ro- MAA, a citizen of the United States, residing at Lanesville, in the county of Essex, State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Anchors; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it pertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to an improvement. in anchors for use with vessels of all descriptions. It has for its object to provide means whereby the fiukes of the anchor can be readily disengaged from their hold on the bottom of the sea, or other body of water, when caught by some sub-marine obstruction or other entanglement and prevent the consequent loss of the anchor by its having to be abandoned. It also has for its object to provide an anchor which when in use will hold the same as any ordinary anchor but when it is desired to hoist or raise it the fiukes will automatically free themselves and assume a position which will not impede the hoisting or raising of the anchor. It further has for its object to provide an anchor which is simple, inexpensive and durable in construction and easy and effective in use.
The invention consists in the several features and construction, combination and arrangement of features as more fully hereinafter described and claimed.
Referring to the drawings :-Figure 1 is a side view in elevation showing the anchor in the position itassumes when ready for use. Fig. 2 a side view in elevation showing the anchor in the position it assumes when the flukes are released and the anchor is ready to be hoisted or raised. Fig. 3 an edge view. Fig. 4 a detail view of the lower portion of the anchor broken away to show the operating mechanism of the fiukes. Fig. 5 a detail sectional view of the upper portion of the shank, stock and bar operat ing lever.
In the drawings in which like numerals of reference denote like parts throughout the several views, 1 represents the shank of the anchor made in two pieces 2 and 3 each provided at the upper end with a circular portion 4, having square holes 5 therethrough, and each provided at its lower end. with an enlarged portion 6 having bolt holes therethrough. The stock 7 of the anchor is provided with a squared middle portion 8 which is inserted in the square holes 5 of shank and held securely therein by split pins 9 which pass through the square portion of the stock. The enlarged portions 6 of the shank are held together by means of bolts 10 and split pins. The two fiukes 11 of the anchor are pivoted between the en larged portions 6 of the shank by means of bolts 12, said flukes each being provided with cogged sectors 13 on its inner end and a fluke point 14 011 its outer end.
A bar 15 is operatively mounted between the two parts 2 and 3 of the anchor shank 1, between which it is designed to oscillate and reciprocate, and is provided on each edge of its lower portion with teeth 16 which mesh with the cogged sectors 13 of the flukes 11, while its upper end 17 is provided with a hole 18.
A lever 19 is pivotally mounted on an enlarged rounded portion 20 of the stock and has a forked lower end 21 which is pivoted to the upper end 17 of the bar 15 by means of a pin 22. The lever 19 is provided with lateral shoulders 23 which bear and ride 011 the circular portions 4 of the two parts 2 and 3 of the shank. The lever 19 tapers gradually from the shoulders 28 to its upper end 24 where it is provided with a pivoted link 25.
The anchor chain is adapted to be attached to the link 25 of the lever 19.
I do not desire to be understood as limiting myself to the specific details of construction and arrangement as herein described and illustrated, as it is manifest that variations and modifications may be made in the features of construction and arrangement in the adaptation of the device to various conditions of use without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention and improvements. I therefore reserve the right to all such variations and modifications as properly fall within the scope of my invention and the terms of the following claims:
What I claim is 1. In an anchor, pivoted fiukes, an oscillatory and reciprocatory bar, means for operatively connecting said fiukes with said bar and means for operating said bar, substantially as described.
2. In an anchor, a two part shank, pivoted flukes, an oscillatory and reciprocatory bar between the parts of said shank, means operatively connecting said bar with said 3. In an anchor, a two part shank, flukes pivoted between the two parts of the shank, an oscillatory and reciprocatory bar between the said two parts of the shank, means operatively connecting the bar with the flukes: and means for operating the bar, substanthe stock of the anchor and pivotally contially as described.
4-. In an anchor, a two part shank, fiukes each provided with a toothed sector, a bar between the two parts of the shank and having teeth which mesh with the toothed sectors of the flukes and means for operating the said bar, substantially as described.
5. In an anchor, a two part shank, flukes each provided with a toothed sector, a bar between the two parts of the shank and having teeth which mesh with the toothed sectors of the flukes, a lever pivotally mounted on the stock of said anchor and pivotally connected to the said bar, substantially as described.
6. In an anchor, a two part shank, flukes pivoted between the two parts of the shank, a bar between the two parts of the shank operatively connected at one end to the flukes, a lever pivotally mounted on the stock of said anchor between the two parts of the shank and pivotally connected to the said bar and means for operating said bar,
substantially as described.
7. In an anchor, a two part shank, flukes pivoted between the two parts of the shank having toothed sectors, a bar pivoted between the two parts of said shank having teeth which mesh with the toothed sectors of the fiukes, a lever pivotally mounted on nected to said bar and means for operating said bar, substantially as described.
8. In an anchor, a two part shank, each part having a circular upper portion, fiukes pivoted between the parts of said shank and having toothed sectors, a bar pivoted between the two parts of the shank and having teeth meshing with the toothed sectors of the flukes, a lever pivotally mounted on the stock of said anchor and pivotally connected to said bar, said lever provided with lateral shoulders which engage the circular portions of the shanks and means for operating said bar, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
